Mary Kerr will again present work at the National Quilt Museum through March.

Her exhibit "Twisted" displays works that repurpose antique textiles, abandoned blocks and vintage fabrics to create new quilts, according to a statement on the Quilt Museum's website about the exhibit.

The exhibit opened on Dec. 15 and runs through March 13.

Kerr is a longtime quilter, teacher, curator and appraiser. She says her pieces use recycled scraps of vintage tops. According to Kerr's artist statement, in creating the work on display in Paducah, "My goal was to incorporate vintage textiles into modern quilts as I allowed the past to collide with a modern aesthetic."

The works were made by 21 quilters, including award-winners Cathy Wiggins, Karen McTavish, Sue Patten, Linda Theifoldt and Cathy Franks.

The National Quilt Museum is at 215 Jefferson St. in Paducah. It's open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The museum will be closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
