Throughout the history of quilting, women have used needle and thread to express their opinions on political and social issues. Portland-area quilters bring this tradition into the current moment in "Outspoken: Modern Quilts." These 13 quilts, created by members of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild, feature words and phrases reflecting on the social movements, political tumult, popular culture and soul searching of the past two years. 

On Tuesday, January 29 quilt designer and textile artist Sam Hunter speaks on "A Brief History of Word Quilts."
