More than 180 quilts honoring the 100th anniversary year of the National Park Service are drawing visitors from as far away as Brithish Columbia and California.
An hour after opening early Friday afternoon, folks from Summerland, B.C. told us they made the trip just to see the quilts. At that point 95 people had already visited the exhibit of what several there described as amazing and stunning quilted works, which depict aspects of national parks, many using techniques that provide a three-dimensional effect that just won’t translate in photos.
Check out our guide to this weekend’s events for more on the quilts, including times and a map to the exhibit
