Quilts will help make a patchwork display

GLASGOW — Visitors to Tompkinsville later this week will have an opportunity to view colorful quilts that will be hung in downtown businesses windows, as well as various homes throughout the county.

The quilts are being put on display Friday and Saturday as a means of celebrating women in the county and the county’s rich quilt heritage.

“It became obvious to us that we always celebrate July 4 and Memorial Day honoring mostly our men and this was a way that we could honor the women of our county who have been here and created traditions, especially the designing and making of quilts,” said Patti Richardson, coordinator for the Monroe County Economic Development Center, who also works closely with the local tourist and convention commission and the chamber of commerce.

This year marks the second time for the event.

“We put this idea out there and we got a lot of response from the older ladies in the community, who said, ‘you know, I would like to participate in that,’” Richardson said. “Last year we had great participation in Gamaliel, Fountain Run, downtown Tompkinsville and all around.”
