Dozens of beautiful quilts will be on display at the Tennessee Valley Museum of Art from October 1 through November 12 for the exhibition From These Threads: Cotton Culture.

The exhibit will feature historical quilts dating from the 1830s through contemporary pieces created by today’s quilt artists. The quilts are drawn from private collections in the area.
