On Sunday, July 17 the museum hosted “Quilt Walk”, an indoor / outdoor exhibit that included heritage quilts from the CMMM collections and more recent items created by local crafters. For those of you who weren’t able to attend, we’d like to show you, over the next week or so, the beautiful handiwork we had on display.
From Marilyn Ramsay:
These hand embroidered / flour sacking squares were started in 1944, believed as a community gift for Anne (Ruth Ramsay’s sister) and Alex Baumgartner. Why it was never finished is a mystery but 5 years ago, some 65 years after it was started, my sister Rhea Lavoie of Prince Albert finished it.
If you can help Marilyn figure out the reason why the squares were started and collected, but the quilt not assembled or finished, please email the Museum at firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact Marilyn directly.
