If you buy one hard copy of Lone Stars III: A Legacy of Texas Quilts, 1986-2011 (list price $50), you’ll also receive two free quilting books: Celebrate Great Quilts and America: From the Heart.
The Texas Quilt Museum opens Thu-Sat 10-4 and Sun noon-4. Admission: $8, $6 students and ages 65 and older. Call ahead to arrange group tours for 20 or more ($6 per person). Call 979/968-3104; www.texasquiltmuseum.org.
