Mass. Quilt Museum Preparing Fenway Tribute

The New England Quilt Museum is preparing a tribute to the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park to mark the 100th anniversary of the ballpark's opening.

On Thursday, the Lowell museum opens an exhibit of about 30 quilts that portray the players, the park or the game that's been played at Fenway since it opened in April 1912.

The museum's Maureen Smith says the quiltmakers are all Red Sox fanatics who wanted to capture some of what's made Fenway special over the last century.

The quilts are modern art, and they're made as wall hangings, not bed covers. Some of the larger quilts would measure about four feet wide by four feet long.

The exhibit opens Thursday, but the official opening reception is next Saturday, March 31.

This program aired on March 26, 2012. The audio for this program is not available.
