Freestone County Museum Donation Quilt

This quilt was made to raise money for Freestone County Museum. The signature blocks were sold to families and individuals. Information in the blocks range s from a simple name to so much information it barly fit in the block. The State of Texas center honors our county with a name and a star. The first 3 rows of blocks were reserved for the pioneers of our county. Anyone living in the county 1900 or before could be honored in this section. These blocks sold for $50 each. The solid inside border is a place where anyone living or has ever lived in the county can place a name for $10.00. The outside blocks are for anyone who has ever lived in the county and sold for $25.00. The quilt has at this time raised over $7000. Quite an accomplishment I have to say. The Wacky Pac Quilting Bee helped me make the blocks. They were paperpieced which made signatures/information easier to be recorded. The quilt will be taken to the quilter in a day or two and then will be hung at the museum's Grand Opening of an additional exhibit building. If you are ever in Fairfield, Freestone County, COME TO THE MUSEUM.
