Joe Cunningham: Finding Freedom
Joe Cunningham started making quilts in 1979, and for about 20 years primarily made copies of old quilts and imitations of old quilt styles. Around the year 2000, he began to make quilts inspired by the adventurous spirit of the 19th century quilters rather than the literal structure. In his attempt to find a way to be free in his thinking, Joe found he could find freedom in his quilt making. The Quilters Hall of Fame is honored to feature the works of Joe Cunningham.
