“Spring Flowers: quilts made of hexagons” is the latest quilt exhibit at the Ozark County Historium in Gainesville. This unique collection consists of more than two dozen quilts made in a variety of patterns that were loaned to the Historium by local residents; the quilt exhibit is available for viewing through May 15. Some of the quilts are in the traditional Grandmother’s Flower Garden pattern that is perhaps the most easily recognized of hexagon quilt patterns while others are quite different. No two are alike, and that is the beauty of the exhibit: while there are similarities, each quilt is unique.
