Sherry's American quilts', which will open at 20th August and be on display until 2nd September.The TRC recently received another box with quilts from Sherry Cook in America, in preparation of the upcoming TRC exhibition '
One of the quilts (TRC 2018.2627), some two by two metres, has a patchwork top made out of blocks that are decorated with an appliqué design of an airplane. The quilt probably dates to the late 1920s. The design became popular after the historic and first solo and non-stop flight by Charles Lindbergh across the Atlantic. The epic flight took place on 20-21 May 1927.
