Quilt gets national exposure

A handmade quilt depicting Montana history is making some history of its own in a national quilting magazine.

"Petticoats 'n' Prairies," a depiction of women in Montana history that was raffled off by the Hi-Line Quilt Guild during Festival Days last year, will have a full-page spread in the November issue of Quilters Newsletter Magazine.

Guild president Suzanne Huston said she had had local photographer Steve Helmbrecht make some photo transparencies of the quilt, which she sent off to the magazine.

"The next thing I knew, they contacted me and wanted to see the actual quilt," Huston said.
