TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Friday is the start of the 37th Annual Capital Quilt Show.

Ellen Rider, who is a senior curator at the Museum of Florida History, joined us on our Midday show on Friday to talk about it.

This year's theme is Autumn Reverie. They'll be featuring 95 quilts at the exhibit.

Awards will be given out by the members of Quilters Unlimited of Tallahassee, a Visitor’s Choice Award will selected by the public and a silent auction will be held to fund charitable initiatives of the guild.

By making a small contribution to Quilters Unlimited, attendees have a chance to win the Opportunity Quilt, which was designed and constructed by members of the guild.

Quilters will also be on hand to answer questions and provide more information about quilting and the examples on display. And for the kids, there will be a scavenger hunt, interactive stitch boards, and magnetic quilt table.

The exhibit starts Friday and runs until Nov. 3 at the Museum of Florida History in the R.A. Gray Building. The quilts are also online at
