Quilts of all sorts — traditional and modern — are on display this weekend at the Grinter Place Quilters’ 39th annual quilt show.
Today’s quilt show saw a good turnout, according to a member of the Grinter Place Quilters, and included a presentation by Patti Winkler on “Quilts in the Classroom: How Quilts Tie into History.”
Sixty-eight quilts are in the quilt show this year, according to a member of the Grinter Quilters. It has been the best year of recent years for attendance.
Some of the interesting exhibits this year are quilt blocks that have been donated and placed on display.
The quilt show started Friday and continues through Sunday. Grinter Place is near South 78th and K-32 in Kansas City, Kan. Sunday hours of the quilt show are noon to 4 p.m., located in the visitors building.
The show, at the visitors building, is free and open to the public. There is a small admission charge to tour the Grinter Place state historic site.
