Kristan McKinsey from the Peoria Riverfront Museum joins us to talk about the exhibit, "Stitched for Pleasure and Purpose: Quilts and Samplers." The quilts are drawn from the museum's permanent collection, and span the late 19th and early 20th centuries. We talk about the history of quilting in America, and its functions -- both practical and social.

"Stitched for Pleasure and Purpose" continues through March 20th at the Peoria Riverfront Museum.
