Quilt goes up for bid in museum silent auction

Carroll County Farm Museum is holding a silent auction for a handmade quilt at its Forgotten Arts Festival Aug. 17 and 18.

A quilting group associated with the museum recently completed the quilt.

Bids may be placed at the museum from 8 a.m. to 4: 30 p.m. weekdays and noon to 4: 30 p.m. weekends.
