Monica Lyons, left, owner of Quilter’s Cottage, explains the intricacies of a quilt pattern to Tara Bevandich and her daughter, Alix, of Philomath, during last weekend’s Quilt Quest in Toledo.

The City of Toledo was a busy place last weekend as three separate, unique events were held in close proximity to each other, offering a look into the world of quilting, trains and the renaissance.
