Quilts come from statewide

March 2, 2006

Albany -- Quilts made by people all over Georgia weaved their way into Albany.

These quilts are part of the "Not your Grandmother's Quilt" contest.

The Georgia Quilt Council is looking for quilts with unique colors and designs... not traditional quilts.

Thronateeska Heritage Center is hosting the exhibit that is traveling statewide.

"It's a little bit of Georgia from all over. You'll find some quilts from Alanta, Macon, Rome. They're just from all over the state of Georgia. So it's really unique," say museum curator Christopher Pike.

The exhibit will run through April. Thronateeska Heritage Center is open from Thursday-Saturday from 12-4 pm.
