Bits of Baltimore and Beyond

There is still time to make a little quilt and have it included in all the exhibits throughout 2018. Donating a small quilt is a wonderful way to help support the quilt preservation work in museums while, at the same time, helping spread the word about BAS. I hope you will consider making a little quilt for this fundraiser. You can now sign up for the block you wish to make on our website, just click here for more information. You will receive an email confirming your selection.
