What a great time of year to see this quilt. We are ready for a national election and our voting is a celebration of the Red, White and Blue.
I am attending the Am Quilt Study seminar in Lincoln NB. It is always a treat and this year it is at the home of the American Quilt Museum. Last night we visited the current displays. One is on signature quilts. The above one has famous signatures and was made in preparation of our bicentennial.
The maker sent out 200 letters asking for signatures and provided a piece of fabric.
In return she received 150 signatures of famous persons
In 1776 G. Ford was president.
The maker embroidered over each of the signatures
Whether you are a famous person or an ordinary one doing extraordinary things, as Mina Kuthe of Maywood, IL, YOU get to help select our next president! May I encourage you to get informed and then get out and vote!
Mina’s quilt may be seen at the American Quilt Museum in Lincoln, NB.
