Quilting Wichita Falls Together

The Wichita Falls Museum of Art at MSU received a generous grant from The Priddy Foundation. Together we will be creating a quilt of 300 squares that will tell the story of Wichita Falls.

The deadline for completed quilt squares for this project has come.  We are excited about the quilts that will be created!  After completed, the quilts will be displayed at locations around Wichita Falls.  The locations will be announced in the near future.

A Sample of quilt squares we have received for this project.
