Lena Behme was a lifelong Virginia quilter who passed away in 2020 at the age of 91. Her work is best known for meticulous hand piecing and quilting, in both traditional and original designs. The exhibition is a retrospective of her work including two full-size quilts (a Dear Jane and a botanical applique that are in the permanent collection of the Museum).
Her work has been featured in magazines and books and she has been awarded many prizes over the years. As a founding member of the Cedar Creek quilt guild, she was a long time VQM volunteer and donated a raffle quilt that raised large sums for the Museum.
