Ten quilts decorate the upstairs hallways of KTOO during September. Members of the Monday Night Sewing Circle and the Gold Street Quilters are displaying a variety of personal quilts. Several quilts, like the Eyes Have It and French Braid, were inspired by workshops led by guest artists. Two are birthday gifts for friends, and another, Pineapple, was 20 years in the making. View these quilts at the KTOO building during business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 to 5 pm. through Oct. 1.
