Standing Rock Quilt hangs in the entrance. The story for this quilt " Made by a Women's Club in Standing Rock, AL in 1918 to raise funds for the Red Cross' service to soldiers and their families during WW 1. Citizens paid to have their names embroidered on signature blocks and the quilt was raffled. Five year old Rip Bonner won the raffle. The quilt has been in the Bonner family every since and has been loaned to the Southeastern Quilt & Textile Museum by Robert Bonner of Carrollton." Come see this unique quilt along with many other old quilts and their stories. Grand Opening this Saturday September 9th from 10:00 to 2:00. Gallery talk at 11:00.
