Display At Grundy County Museum

Photo Courtesy of Phil Schlarb A recent donation by Jim Brown of Downey CA returned a locally-made quilt to Grundy County after a 100-year absence. This quilt, created in 1915, was made by members of the Edinburg and Trenton ME churches. Measuring 51 inches by 73 inches with a 24-inch skirt, the quilt has 24 blocks with a wagon wheel design and the spokes are the names of 384 people living in the community at that time. According to Brown, wagon wheel quilts were often made as fund raisers. Each person would pay to have their name sewn into a block and the finished quilt would then be auctioned to finance a local project. The quilt is now on display at the museum as part of this year’s featured exhibit, Grundy County Artists and Art. The exhibit includes over 250 paintings, drawings and sculptures. The museum is open 2 to 5 p.m. on weekends and holidays. Admission is free for children 12-and-under and $2 for adults.
