When coming through the door at the Polk Township Fire company, the sunshine of a bright yellow quilt made by Virginia Costenbader and shown by her daughter Sandra Borger, made the whole room seem brighter.

The quilt was part of the Polk Township Historical Society's annual quilt and stitchery show, which took place on June 10.

The show featured the beautiful work of fabric artists.

Quilting can be a way to recycle old clothes, scraps left over from sewing projects or new material to be made into something useful or decorative.

Fabric art is described as addicting, and the artists have a love for putting things together, which often entices them into starting a new project when one is done.
