Art's Center Announces Featured Artist for October


"Quilts and More Quilts" will be the theme for Roberta Eckley of Carrollton and her collection of quilts. Roberta will be the Featured Artist for October.


"I have been quilting since I was 14 years old when a 4-H leader got me started", stated Roberta. "Quilting has changed immensely over the years." She has been quilting for 23 years with an informal group that meets at the Friendship Center on Tuesday mornings.


In 2003 Roberta had a quilt chosen to hang at the Ohio State Fair during the Ohio BiCentennial Quilt Showcase.  She has antique quilts and wall hangings in addition to her many quilts. She also quilts "I Spy" Quilts for children.


Roberta and a young niece that she taught to quilt had a recent small display at the Main Library of the Carroll County District Library.
