LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A new exhibition at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum in Lincoln will shed light on the role stitched signatures can play in depicting people's lives.

"Signature Cloths" will open on Friday at Quilt House, 1523 N. 33rd St. The exhibition focuses on sewn signatures as visual symbols and as a method of social engagement.

Historic quilts from the museum's collection will be displayed alongside new pieces created by Lynn Setterington, a British quilt artist and educator.

The International Quilt Study Center and Museum at Quilt House is an academic program of the Department of Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design in the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Education and Human Sciences.

The museum is home to the world's largest publicly held quilt collection.
