American Folk Art Museum Quilts

These are a few quilts I saw at the American Folk Art Museum in New York, a charming and very tiny museum next door to the MOMA. The plaque next to the first quilt said that the makers name was so prominent in the quilt, because there were few ways for women to get recognition at the time. Also, labels were necessary for practical reasons as textiles were expensive.
