The National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky, is hosting a Torah quilt display entitled “Sacred Patterns: Quilted Meditations on the 54 Torah Portions.” Highlighting the first five books of the Hebrew Bible, the quilts were made by Deborah Hagen from Austin, Texas, and will be on display mid-August. The quilts are on loan from the Agudas Achim Congregation in Austin, TX.
“This exceptional display at the National Quilt Museum explores the depth and wonder of the Torah (the first five books of the Hebrew Bible) through the art of quilting,” said Gregory Waldrop, pastor at the Fountain Avenue United Methodist Church in Paducah, Kentucky. “Each of the five quilts tells important stories from the book it represents.”
Due to the inspirational nature of these quilts, this free display will be of special interest to faith-based groups. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more wishing to see the main gallery quilt exhibit.
