Everyone has seen a quilt, but many do not understand that these are literal works of art. Some are handed down from generation to generation; some provide a patchwork of pictures that cover all aspects of one’s life. There are quilts in the world that represent entire families and date back to their own “crossing” to the United States; quilts that represent a time when they came to this country in order to be a part of the “patchwork quilt” of diverse people who made America great. There are even those who have taken the time to learn this art form, and are now able to create absolute masterpieces that all have the opportunity to view. That is where the lovely state of Kentucky comes into play.
