?I admire the work and creativity it took to make all of these quilts,? she said.
Morse, who now lives at Marion Assisted Living, recalled making quilts and spending many hours volunteering at Marion Library when she moved back after living in Washington, D.C.
As she studied each of the quilts with her niece, Janet Hett, Morse was in awe of the designs and themes.
?These quilters did a very great job,? she said, ?especially quilts with the tiny, tiny pieces.?
Morse enjoyed the lighthearted themes, too, like the ?Wizard of Oz,? ?Santa Claus? and ?The Crazy Quilt.?
The display is something families might want to see and experience quilt-making traditions and the contributions crafters have made to their families and communities for many years.
Among the quilt-makers displaying their work or a contribution from a family member are: Amy Rowles, Janice Case, Kathy Silhan, Nancy Methvin, Dorothy Gilbert, Mary Travis, Margaret Hett, Alice Jost, Janice Waner, Malorie Hein, Judy Christensen, Diane Bronson, Judy Kill, Charlene Driggers, Elora Robinson, Fern Goodwin, Pauline Holub, Laurie Miesse, Jenn Winter, Vicki Kraus and Janet Marler.
