TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- As winter sets in, many of us are curling up under quilts to fight off the cold. These soft bundles of warmth often get handed down through the generations and become another way to capture our history.

With that in mind, the Kansas Historical Society announced a new exhibit coming next month to the Kansas Museum of History.

Speaking of Quilts: Voices from the Collection and Community will open on January 17, the organization announced on Friday. It will run through August 31, 2014.

The exhibit will be filled with "timeless beauties" as well as modern quilts made as works of art.

It will feature a 1930s applique, a crazy quilt made in a sod house in 1888, a community quilt created a hundred years later, and a wood barn quilt.

Admission will be $8 for adults and $6 for students. Kansas Historical Foundation members and children five and under can get in free.
