    City of Hinesville had a quilt given to them by a family that had a family member who live in the city in the 1940-1950s. There are ladies names embroderied in to scrappy blocks. Some of those names have streets named after them. some names are from families that still live in the city. It is neat that the City had the quilt frame and sitting in the Mayor's reception room. (It framed out at apro. 80" by 90", to big to hang on the wall. Had a fun time getting into the building throught the double doors.)

    In about 1985, we moved from Montgomery, AL to India. Friends in Montgomery made a beautiful table cloth for us with flowers by each embroidered name. I can only imagine how much trouble it must have been to do all that and to organize its construction too. The downside was that I had to store the table cloth because we could only bring two suitcases each and had to leave the cloth in storage along with most of our household goods. One year when we returned, I found the cloth had huge holes in it because the rats had gotten into the storage shed. =(

    A beautiful treasure! Neat that you know the story of it as well. Do write down what you know, so the history can go along with it.
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!
