A PRAISE!: Rose Marie Smith reported her lost quilt has been found in Salt Lake City, Utah. A woman there bought a number of unclaimed packages at the UPS Warehouse. One contained her niece’s quilt with her name inside the quilt: The woman contacted Rose Marie’s niece and then sent it to her!
The main theme of the program was preserving our quilt heritage through record-keeping, labels, and photographs. Shelly, Rose Marie, and Barb B. offered examples of how they keep track of important information.
For the second part of the program, members were encouraged to bring quilts they would like to have photographed. These were hung and pictures taken. There are lots of close-up shots that show the quilting and other details, too. Enjoy!
