Kaleidoscope showcases thirty rarely seen or previously unseen quilts. Made in twenty-eight different patterns, they range in age from the 1820s through the 1970s. While many of these quilts illustrate high levels of artistry, others are less accomplished in their execution. All were made by loving hands however.  Regardless of the skill level involved, these textiles illustrate many of the quiltmaking  techniques and patterns represented in the collection and are part of the rich cultural tradition of quiltmaking in Kentucky that extends back more than 200 years.
