14. The Quilt

Previous | Index | Next

On the wall, across the top of the stairs, there is the library quilt. This quilt was designed as a library Centennial project in 1987 by Theresa Lewis and Barbara Murphy and completed by 133 people working on various phases of it. Each of their names appears on the face of the quilt. The idea for the quilt was conceived and a simple drawing of the library was done on graph paper. The graph was enlarged to the finished size of the quilt and marked in 1-inch squares on heavy cardboard. Materials were chosen and some were dyed using the batik method. Fourteen cutters began marking and cutting the material into 5,510 pieces. Once sorted each piece was pinned onto the cardboard to create a fabric picture. Then the process was reversed in 8 inch by 10-inch blocks and distributed to 80 sewers.

Meanwhile embroiderers recorded all the names etc. and appliqued the pieces onto the pieced quilt. After the quilt was marked for quilting it was set up in the library so anybody could help with the quilting. The finishing edging was done and the quilt was hung for all to see.

Thank you for working on the Library Quilt
