Jane Lehew, who comes from a long line of quilters, is displaying quilts that she and the women of her family have crafted over the years. The art show consists of more than 30 quilts and will continue to display now through June 22 at the Gold Derrick Gallery in Sistersville.

“There are probably quilts in here from every decade since the 30s,” she said.

The oldest quilt was made by her great-great grandmother in 1869, and its long lasting patterns have been borrowed to frame these photos.
