Twenty bright and intricate quilts color the upstairs walls of the KTOO building. Members of the Monday Night Sewing Circle and the Gold Street Quilters made these quilts for their own homes or for family and friends. The works include traditional blocks such as the pineapple and kaleidoscope, two lively bargello patterns and a child’s quilt of lively turtles. The quilts may be viewed business hours through the end of October.
