The Children's Quilt

This sampler quilt hangs near the side entrance of the Selma-Dallas County Public Library. The blocks were designed and stitched in recognition of schools and community organizations that contribute to the future of our children.

The red wall to the right works so well with the quilt. Children's libraries are such special places;] Nice post.

Quilts are such an American thing. We have no tradition like that. I think it's a real community past time. A great choice of location to hang it.

Lovely post. Reminds me of the movie 'How to make an American Quilt?'. Well...only in America!!!

Sorry for not visiting your site for such a long time but here at TORUĊƒ DP we have been very busy! Doesn't mean we have forgotten about your site though!

Very colorful and definitely American.

I have granted you the You Make my Day award (which was granted to me earlier today by Olivier).
