EUGENE, Ore. (KMTR) - A local group is celebrating Eugene's 150th Birthday by putting together a special piece of art.
Three women from the Emmaus Lutheran Church on West 18th Avenue in Eugene are quilting a timeline of sorts to represent Eugene in the last 150 years.
The group started laying out the fabrics Thursday, including a train, a slug, some track town displays and more. They're using old photos of Eugene given to them by the Lane Historical Society to work off of.
""It's been an interesting process of all of our viewpoints coming together again realizing what Eugene really is," said Diane Palmer.
In the next few months, the group will essentially put Eugene onto a canvas. They will give the quilt to Mayor Kitty Piercy October 17th at Eugene's Birthday celebration.
