Dorene McMahan would like to display your family quilt in the Wagoner City Historical Museum and also learn the story behind why it was made as the third annual Quilt Show begins.
The show will run from March 5-27 at the museum at 122 S. Main. This show will also honor the memory of Liz McMahan, no relation to Dorene, and her love of quilts and celebrate National Quilt Month.
“We’ve had as many as 60 quilts (on display) before,” Dorene said. “We will have one pre-Civil War quilt, too.”
The exhibition is looking for all kinds of quilts. If there is a story behind the quilt, Dorene is asking for it to be written out and accompany the family heirloom.
“New quilts are welcome, too,” Dorene added.
The museum will display the quilts and the stories behind them from Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Liz passed away in 2018 and the quilt show was one of her many projects she helped lead or organized.
People can bring quilts to the museum for the show during regular business hours before the March 5 opening.
