Join us at The National Quilt Museum in Paducah on March 7, 2020 at 1:00PM for the unveiling of "Rita's Quilt." Rita's Quilt will be on display at the National Quilt Museum through May 17, 2020.

Come see in person this marvel of teamwork, and learn how the unfinished artwork of Rita Smith was discovered by Shannon Downey (@badasscrossstitch) and completed with the help of over 100 volunteer stitches and artists from all over the United States and Canada.
