Tarleton fine arts gallery hosts work of Dublin quilting club




Tuesday, July 16, 2019

STEPHENVILLE, Texas — Tarleton State University’s Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center hosts an exhibit of the Dublin Rippers quilting club through Aug. 9 in the gallery on the Stephenville campus.

Members Donna Timmons and Hazel Ashcraft find joy in making quilts for family members, and solace in making them from the clothing of loved ones who have passed on.

Peggy DeLaVergne quilts her amazement for the continent of Africa, and Sonja Banister has a quilt for every holiday. Her hand-embellished creations are for sale on etsy.com. Suzann Thompson, a long-time crocheter, adds flowers and doilies to her wall hangings.

A reception for the quilters takes place at 4 p.m. Wednesday, July 24.
