The rest of the photos were taken during the presentation of an antique quilt and the reproduction quilt that was made by our Liberty Ladies group. Geri owned the antique quilt and, both were donated to the museum. The original quilt was made by a group of ladies in Illinois for a shoe store competition and promotion. Fabrics were chosen which closely duplicate the antique quilt. The museum plans to hang both later this year and our group hopes to visit again and have our picture taken next to the quilts.
