About this Article

Quilts have been liberated -- or so one might think while visiting the quilt art exhibition, "Conversations in Stitch on Nature," running through Aug. 25 at the Bloomingdale Park District Museum. In the exhibition sponsored by Fiber Artists Coalition, a group of Midwest textile artists who have broken traditional quilting rules, these aren't quilts to cover beds but art to hang on walls.
