The 2013 All America City Quilt, which has been traveling the country since last September, arrived in Peoria for a week long display at the Peoria Riverfront Museum. This quilt is making stops in 13 states in the cities of the 20 finalists from the 2013 All America City competition. The quilt will be in Peoria for one week after which it heads to Sarasota, Florida. Each year finalists in the All America City Award program are asked to submit quilt squares representing something special about their communities. The squares are stitched together into a quilt which tours the country. The quilt will be on display through February 27th, Tuesday through Thursday from 10 to 5, Saturday 10 to 8 and Sunday 12 to 5.
