Heritage Center seeks quilts for display

As the long, cold months of January and February descend upon the City of Monticello, the Monticello Heritage and Cultural Center would like to cozy up with a quilt show. 

Quilts from families in the Monticello area will be displayed at the Center from Saturday Jan. 4 until Friday, Feb. 28. The Center is particularly interested in quilts that have a history or family tale associated with them, but an unusual quilt is also welcome. 

Please contact Deb Bowman at 319-465-5228 if you would like to display a quilt. You’ll be asked for the name of the quilt owner and the history of the quilt to be placed alongside the quilt display. 

You’re asked to drop off your quilt at the Heritage Center on Jan. 4 at 10 a.m. 

Any quilt-making tools would also be welcome for display. 

The Heritage Center is located at 211 N. Sycamore St.
