November 11th, 2012 was quilt presentation day at the Dodge County Historical Society. Thank you so much to all who came out for the event. I really enjoyed talking with you, hearing your stories of fathers and uncles and family members who fought in World War One. Here are some of the pictures my husband took of the day.
My brother in law, Mike Ambrose, helping me drape the quilt.
Showing Linda "THE BOOK." This is the record where I found the lists of veterans for the quilt.
Here's the book table. :)
In the foreground is the original quilt that inspired my newest release.
A few of the folks who came out.
I was honored to meet Evelyn, who told me her father's name was on the quilt...and her father's cousin, too. They both share the same name!
Finding Evelyn's dad's name on the quilt.
Chatting with Linda and Ruth.
Linda and me with the board of directors of the Dodge County Historical Society.
James, who ran to the car several times to replenish the book table. (And who also ate his share of the yummy cake the ladies provide.)
Finding another relative's name on the quilt.
We were serenaded by lovely tunes on the antique Chickering piano.
Me with a WW1 vintage flag. Note the 48 stars. :)
It was a lovely time in the church museum, and I was so blessed to have so many family and friends there.
Question for you...how'd you spend your weekend?
