At 6 years old, the child often admired a cover that featured little dolls wearing bonnets that stayed tucked away in her parent’s newly acquired Paris, Texas, home. It was not until she was almost 40 that now master quilter Regina Harris-Holcomb became familiar with “Sunbonnet Sue.”

An exhibit featuring 18 quilts, all a part of the story of Harris’ journey in quilting, is featured at the Valley of the Caddo Museum and Cultural Center, 115 Bonham St. The museum is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
