Proud Of East Texas: Quilt Show

The history of our country has not only been written into history books. It's also been stitched into quilts. That's the reason Deborah Burkett chooses to hold an annual quilt show during the week of July Fourth.

Close to fifty quilts are on displayed at Aunt Lillie's Antiques And Gifts in the historic Hannah House in Troup. The home, built in 1872 by Troup Mayor and physician, Dr. Hannah, is filled with old quilts, new quilts, baby quilts, appliqued quilts and cross stitch quilts. An old-fashioned quilting bee at Aunt Lillie's is making a quilt to be auctioned off for charity.

International quilting specialist and author, Victoria Hoffman, will be at the show July 4th and 5th from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. To make an appointment for a quilt appraisal, call 903-842-1936.

Aunt Lillie's Antiques And Gifts is located at 118 North Georgia Street in Troup.
