Franklin residents learn the art of quilting

Updated:

Many see them as a decoration, or something to keep you warm, but as Southeast Kansas learned Sunday, the art of quilt making has much more to it.

Jan Campbell and Elma Hurt are two quilt artists out of Franklin, Kansas. Sunday they presented their evolution of quilts exhibit at the Miners Hall Museum, displaying all the tricks and techniques to quilting.

One emphasis of the presentation was the utilization of things you may have laying around in your house, like old T-shirts, ribbons, and even post cards.
     
Campbell and hurt say the best part about quilts are the unique, individual touches they add to the home....but, you gotta make sure you know the real definition of the product.

"It's not a blanket...It's a quilt. That is the first thing. A quilt is a back and a front and has something in the middle, and it's sandwiched together and is quilted. Either by hand or machine." Campbell and Hurt say.

Several of Campbell's and Hurt's works, along with other quilt makers across the area will be on display at the museum until march.
