Although the weather may be too warm to add one to your bed, the Museum of the San Ramon Valley is removing quilts from their closet summer homes in a new exhibit.
"Quintessential Quilts: A Floral Fantasy" will be on display through Sunday, Sept. 29 and features several special events on Saturdays. The exhibit explores the history of floral fabrics used by quilters, past to present, withábeautiful quilts, quilted wearable art and wall hangings.
A special display features quilts sewn by men alongside some of the tools men use to create varied handcrafted objects.
Upcoming Saturday guests include Denise Sheehan, who will conduct a hand applique demonstration on Sept. 14. Sandra Newman will demonstrate creating hexagons on Sept. 21 and a team will demonstrate raw edge and quilted appliques on Sept. 28.
The museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 1 p.m. till 3 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. and Sundays from noon till 3 p.m. For more information on the exhibit, visit the museum website or call 837-3750.
