The fifth annual quilt exhibit opens at the Sherratt Library on the campus of Southern Utah University tomorrow, November 5th.

This popular exhibit is a tradition that loyal viewers look forward to each fall season. This year, the exhibit is titled, The Enterprising Quilt Makers of Enterprise, Utah. The beautiful display features quilts made by the hands of the small community 40 miles southwest of Cedar City. The quilts represent the last 50-years history of the community, particularly the high school.

There are a wide variety of quilts this year made from some interesting materials, like flour sacks. Many of the quilts, made by the Enterprise Home Economics class of 1956, were stitched with pieces that students left on the floor after they cut out their project. A myriad of patterns are represented, including, cathedral window, broken star, double wedding ring and many others.

The public is invited to stop by and visit the exhibit in the SUU Library through December 11, during regular Library hours. Please note that the Library will be closed November 27-29 for Thanksgiving Recess. It will re-open on Sunday, the 30th.
