I am always pleased when I see original art incorporated in public buildings--including quilts used as decoration. The Ashe County library pleased me greatly!
High on the wall of the tower section is a large barn square quilt. I suspect it was made by the Quilt Square Girls in West Jefferson, who also made the smaller one that we purchased for our cabin.
Hanging over the reception desk is a child's quilt by a member of the Ashe Piecemakers Quilt Guild.
And in the children's section are paper quilts that I suspect were made in local school classes, or perhaps were made in a children's craft activity at the library.
