Quilt Project

??????????

Sam Olson and Donna Anderson have been working on a photo collection of all the beautiful quilts that are in are collection.

One of the most historical quilts in our collection is a crazy quilt that is hand stitched together using a variety of different stitches. The unique part of this quilt is the souvenir ribbons from laying the Corner Stone of the Lac qui Parle County Court House.  These ribbons are dated June 21, 1899 and are stitched into the quilt. I refer to this as the Hannah quilt because the name Hannah is stitched into one of the blocks.  I wonder who Hannah was.   If anyone has any idea please contact the museum.
