Flushing Historical Society Quilt Show April 30, 2011

I love a good quilt show, and I really like old quilts.  So I was thrilled to visit the Flushing Historical Society’s quilt show this morning.  The Society owns the old Flushing Depot in downtown Flushing, and quilts were hanging throughout the entire building.

Virginia Anderson was present at the show explaining the details on various quilts, and showing the quilts collected and made by Mary Schafer.  The way the exhibit was set up made it difficult to get photos of each quilt in its entirety, so I did the best I could.  Here are some that grabbed my eye.

I was excited to see my quilt hanging in the exhibit!  The Flushing Sesquicentennial Quilt was made as a fundraiser for Riverbank Park’s walkway in 1984.  Designed from old photographs of Flushing, it includes the old mill, Depot, old Flushing High School, the original fire station and more.  People paid to have their signature placed on the quilt to raise money for the brick walkway.
