In the mid-1800s, Friendship Quilts were a way to commemorate events and memories, often with a large group of people creating the quilt for a particular person or family. These quilts were often personalized with the signatures of those who made the squares in the quilt.
With this in mind, the Nevins Library developed the Friendship Quilt Project. Starting in December 2020 and continuing through March 2021, the library requested quilt squares from the community to be included in the Friendship Quilt.
Crafty citizens of all ages contributed enough squares to create four quilts, now displayed throughout the library this summer.
Crafty patrons contributed fabric squares to create four quilts on display at the Nevins Library.
