The South Plains Quilters Guild is presenting their annual quilt display at the Mahon Library, 1306 9th St., from November 16th until December 31st.

Nearly 40 handmade quilts of varying colors, sizes and designs are displayed from the library's second floor level. Each quilt tells a story that is a labor of love.

Quilts include "Fantastic Fans," "Kitchen Chickens" and a "Grandchild Quilt," which incorporates baby clothes from four grandchildren. Other quilts are "Christmas Bears," "Indian Dreams," and "Trip Around the World."

The quilt, ‘Many Mansions" won Best of Show at the 2013 Portales, New Mexico Quilt Festival and has 365 small houses on the quilt plus a larger center house.

Regular library hours are Monday through Wednesday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
