Ask anyone locally who to talk to about quilting, and the same name appears again, and again: Milly Splitstone. We don’t realize often how many treasures we have in our own back yard, but Mrs. Splitstone is undoubtedly a qualified expert when it comes to quilting, the history of quilting and quilt collections. She’s been featured in quilt shows too numerous to mention, has juried many competitions, held workshops, lead groups and has inspired quite literally, generations of quilters.

Milly wall webMillie’s collection of quilt blocks, those fundamental, traditional, sometimes experimental squares that when pieced together, make up a beloved quilt, numbers over 800. This awe inspiring display of over 600 of Millie’s quilt blocks will walk you through the tradition carried down by each generation, the history of the time when the block was created, or the fabric recycled, and will inevitably touch you with the passion this woman has for her art. Whether you’re a quilter or not, you’ll be amazed by the culture, and craft reflected in this collection.
