    Donna Duncan of Eminence said the Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society’s quilts don’t get out much in January and February.

    It seems ironic, but the society’s quilt collection lies dormant most of the winter.

    Duncan hopes to change that. “Rather than languishing in my living room,” she said, “I’m taking them out as a trunk show exhibit.”
