McPHERSON—Library patrons can once again enjoy the detailed artistry of the McPherson Quilt Guild at the McPherson Public Library during January and February.

The guild is offering two shows. The first show, which opened on Jan. 4, is titled, “Stitching Through the Pandemic,” and features Laura Heine fabric collage projects, as well as other projects that were created using the extra time at home during the pandemic. This collection also includes a couple quilts that were recreated using second-hand shop finds.

In February, the guild will bring in a collection called “COVID Challenges.” This delightful and inspiring set of quilts reflects challenges that the group held over the past few months, including a Zoom challenge and a birthday challenge.

We feel lucky to have our quilting hobby to keep our minds and hands busy as we stay safe during this pandemic,” Cheri Hanschu, president of the guild, said.

The McPherson Quilt Guild was started by a group of women who were interested in quilting as an art form. This is their 33nd year as a community organization. The group meets the second Monday of the month and is currently meeting via Zoom.
