You don’t need to turn up the AC to enjoy a quilt today

On this Fourth of July weekend, quilts might not be the first thing on most people’s mind, but not for an aficionado. Someone sent me a link to a CBS story (CBS quilt story) on the popularity of quilts and the recognition that quilts are not only historical and cultural artifacts, but also works of art. The Hickman County Quilt Committee has been working for years to showcase quilts with Hickman County connections. The Hickman County Quilt Show is usually held in Centerville, Tennessee the first weekend in October when there might be a little chill in the air. It is a great event and an exhibition catalogue of each of the previous few shows has been published after the event to chronicle the warmth of the media and the provenance of quilt.
