Quilts part of winter exhibit - November 18, 2009

Quilts are the focal point of the winter exhibit at the Dekker Huis Museum, 37 E. Main St., Zeeland.


Volunteers Debbie Albert and Dorothy Voss assisted the museum’s curator, Suzy Frederick, in a search of the museum’s quilts. Among the many quilts on display, perphaps the oldest and most unique has been passed on through generations of the Van de Luyster family. It’s made entirely of men’s neckties. Other quilts show histories of personal signatures, intricately stitched designs, or colorful nursery themes.


The museum is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. Admission is free.
