Albany - A centuries-old craft is on display at Thronateeska Heritage Center in Albany. More than 60 quilts, created by Southwest Georgia's Wiregrass Quilter's Guild, will be on display until April 30st at Thronateeska.

"Some are more tradition, others modern," said Wiregrass Quilter's Guild member Dianne Morgan. "Some are hand quilted, some are machine quilted. There are appliqued quilts and pieced quilts, just a lot of different kinds."

Renowned quilter Flavin Glover, of Alabama, is also giving quilting classes at the center throughout the month.
