My daughter who lives in Fort Scott, KS sent me this wonderful news piece.  I have provided it below for you to consider in your own community.  What a magical display will this be!  Thanks Jody! 
The Airing of the Quilts

     What a festive sight in historic Fort Scott all of March, recreating a long time tradition bringing winter bedding outside to bask in the sunshine and catch the fresh breezes welcoming springtime to the Prairie. Celebrate Women's History Month with Voices from the Quilts.  Toss quilts over balconies, banisters, fences & clothes lines to tell our story from the Voices from the Quilts!
     The entire month of March centers around the Fort Scott National Historic Site bringing Civil War Quilts and memorabilia for all to appreciate and admire:  "Reflections on the War: Women and their Civil War Quilts"   The Sutler of Fort Scott has contributed authentic Civil War sewing tools and accessories to be on display all month. 
      See  Quilts telling the stories of local families at Lyons Twin Mansions  daily  and free of charge.  Downtown shoppes have their windows and walls full of quilts.  Window shopping is a delightful experience in historic Fort Scott . . just like in the olden days!  Come on downtown and experience the magic!
