Local guild donates art quilt to Detroit Lakes Public Library
A new decorative quilt now graces the wall above the main desk at the Detroit Lakes Public Library. The quilt was donated to the library by the Lakes Area Quilt Guild.
The Detroit Lakes Public Library has a new, fun, and colorful piece of art displayed on the wall above its main desk.
An "Art Quilt" wall hanging was designed, pieced, and quilted by members of the Lakes Area Quilt Guild and gifted to the library as a community service project.
Contributing members sewed blocks using materials and colors of their own choosing to depict books on a shelf. Looking closely, one will see a hedgehog, kitty, fairy, spider, and other critters peeking out from the books.
The Lakes Area Quilt Guild meets the fourth Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the meeting room of the Detroit Lakes Police Department. The Guild welcomes quilters of all levels.
