Beautiful Mecklenburg, NY Quilt!

The beautiful quilt we have hanging behind the check out counter at FOUND is being offered for sale as a fund raiser for the Mecklenburg Methodist Church on Turnpike Road in Mecklenburg, NY.
Mecklenburg Methodist Church Quilt80x96The border is made from newer material, but the rest of the quilt top has been authenticated to be made of fabric from the late 1930s and early 40s. It was pieced together by someone in the Mecklenburg area around that time.

Several years ago the quilt was donated to the Mecklenburg Church Thrift shop. Jean Taber, Yvonne Foote, Carol Kellogg, Calina Mayo and her daughter Emma attached the border, hand-quilted and finished it so could be offered for purchase.

The colors are vibrant and festive and the handwork is incredible! It measures 80 x 96 inches and is priced at $300.
