About this Collection
Every quilt has a story and so does every fabric collection! The incredible compilation of quilts at the Shelburne Museum in
Shelburne, Vermont embodies a veritable sampling of patterns, textiles, quilting designs and ultimately historical vignettes that beg to be shown and told. One such quilt is the Cornucopia Medallion (1800-1825) that inspired the fabric line, In the Time of Toile. The name of the line evokes an historical time period that embodies chintz and toile fabric, rich and vibrant colors, and both pieced and broderie perse techniques. These authentically reproduced textiles allow for much creativity and will help you create your own story.
