Storybook Quilts

Wenham Museum for Children and Families of the NorthShore

At the turn of the 21st century the Common Threads Quilt Guild began a project called The Storybook Quilts under the leadership of Pat Gandt. The quilts were sewn with love by members of the guild with the goal of supporting literacy and fostering interest in the needle arts. The guild drew inspiration from children’s books that used quilts or coverlets as an integral part of their stories.
