The New England Quilt Museum is the only East Coast venue to exhibit the charm quilts from the Pat L. Nickols Collection at the Mingei International Museum, San Diego, California. Over the last 30 years, Nickols has amassed a wondrous collection of mostly American quilts from various parts of the country. The charm quilts gathered for this exhibition are composed of elaborate geometric patterns in which every piece of fabric is different. This style of quilt making is attributed to the eastern U.S. in the late 1860s, but enjoyed widespread popularity in the 1870s and 1880s.
