Then, fiber artist Sandra Smith takes us behind the scenes of an exhibit of quilts at the Peale museum. "Quilted Connections: A Sisterhood in Cloth" includes quilts created by Smith, Rosalind Robinson, and Glenda Richardson. All three women are members of the African American Quilters of Baltimore.
