This exhibition will feature improvisational quilts made by Susana Allen Hunter. It will be launched together with the museum's folk art take-over project HMA's Fall into Folk Art on October 2, the day of the Foothills Folk Art Festival in downtown Newton.

Susana Allen Hunter (1912-2005) lived in rural community in one of the poorest counties at the time Wilcox County, Alabama from the 1930s through the 1970s. Hunter and her husband Julius earned their living from cotton, corn, and potatoes farming.
