Sue Reich noted quilt historian is coming to Abilene for the Stars Over Abilene Quilt Show on June 13-14, 2014. Ms Reich brings with her a collection of vintage signature quilts. Signature quilts are inked, stamped, or embroidered with names. They are a historical document recording those belonging to a family, community or organization. 



A ladies group or club, church members, or other organization might create a signature quilt as a token of friendship presented to a leader or departing member. Signature quilts are also created to raise funds. Donations are collected for each signature and often the quilt is then raffled off to raise even more money. A current variation of the signature quilts is a prayer quilt with signed blocks that serve as a visual reminder of family and friends lifting them up in prayer given to someone facing serious illness or other need.

This years raffle is for a miniature painting of a bird which has been painted by Lue Kraatz, a member of M-WTAG.
