Flo & Edna Quilt Exhibit

Posted by Bryce Kendrick on February 11, 2019

Walk through forty years of quilt making, from Depression Era every day quilts to top-of-the bed applique quilts of the 1960s. See how fabric availability, color, patterns, and applique kits changed the look and purpose of quilt making for mid-century grandmothers Flo Askin and Edna George.

This exhibit will be on display at the Ohio County Historical Society, 212 S. Walnut St. in Rising Sun, from April 4-21.  Hours are from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 12 noon-4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.  Admission is free.

This exhibit is the first public showing of quilts on loan by Judy George and Sally McWilliams of Madison and their families.
