Though the students in the class had no quilting experience, we stitched more than 50 colorful quilts, working with kids at local elementary schools, Transylvania students and neighbors, Lexington’s Quilting Society, University of Kentucky students, and many others. We used the quilts to create a temporary installation by slipcovering the inside of Marty Clifford’s second-hand furniture store (now a local restaurant, Minton’s 760), before donating all of them to Kentucky’s Build-A-Bed project.
