Featured Quilt - Three Kings by Bisa Butler

Travel is a wonderful thing. Just wandering around downtown Cincinnati after attending a wedding, we spotted this treasure hanging on the wall at a place called the 21c Museum Hotel. It was a hotel where the whole lobby and surrounding area were covered with art. Take a look at the quilt we found across from the receptionist's desk.
