GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – If you’re looking for something to do for spring break, today we’re highlighting an exhibit at the Lakeshore Museum Center which celebrates the quilt making talent of a woman who lived in Muskegon.

Rosie Wilkins was featured in a book about African American quilters and even had her quilts featured by the Smithsonian in Washington DC! She was very talented, but not many knew her story until now – her life and quilts are being featured at the Lakeshore Museum Center.
