Just before the fire, I had gone around the Kirksville Art Gallery and taken pictures of the Fabulous Hands of Friendship Quilt Exhibit.

Then came the fire.

 

So here is the Show as I saw it just hours before these precious items were burned.

Enjoy is the wrong word, but appreciate might work.

 

Thank you for stopping by to stroll thru the Kirksville Arts Gallery to view the Quilt Exhibit.

 

As you came into the Gallery, this is the first piece you would have seen.

Right behind the Docent Table this Seasonal Quilt greeted the visitors.

If you stepped around the corner to enter the Big Room, these lovely smaller quilts could be seen.
