EXHIBIT
Quilt show at Bulloch Hall

The best quilts are meant to last a lifetime and, fittingly enough, the annual quilt show at Roswell’s historic Bulloch Hall is going strong as it marks 30 years. The “Great American Cover-up Quilt Show,” including about 200 quilts made by metro Atlanta artists, runs March 10-18 at the 1839 childhood home of President Theodore Roosevelt’s mother, Mittie Bulloch. The show organized by the Bulloch Hall Quilt Guild has the theme “Pearls of Wisdom.” A special accompanying exhibit is titled “Trip Around the World: A Quilt Block Travelog.”

10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 1-4 p.m. Sunday. $8, $7 seniors, $6 children. 180 Bulloch Ave., Roswell. 770-992-1731, www.bullochhall.org. Quilt guild information: www.bhqg.org. HOWARD POUSNER
