The Virginia Quilt Museum has announced the exhibit "Stargazing" will feature star motif quilts through Dec. 14. The galleries of the museum's antebellum house, located in historic downtown Harrisonburg, will be filled with quilts made by members of the American Quilt Study Group. Also included will be quilts from the museum's permanent collection and modern quilts by the guilds of Roanoke's Star Quilters and Fredericksburg's Virginia Star Quilters.

American Quilt Study Group members made new quilts based on old quilts in museums and private collections; 25 of the exhibited quilts are newly made reproductions of antique quilts.

The museum is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday. For more information, call 540-433-3818 or visit www.americanquiltstudygroup.org or www.vaquiltmuseum.org.
