• Quilts, Quilts, Quilts In Dublin, Texas

    As everyone rejoiced in the soft rain that fell on Saturday morning, October 8, the doors of the Little Church on Grafton Event Center in Dublin opened its doors to welcome the Quilt Trunk Show sponsored by the Dublin Historical Society.

    PEGGY AND MARY

    Put on as a fundraiser for the historical society, the morning and afternoon presentations of the beautiful array of quilts were nothing short of spectacular. Every space in the church was adorned with patchwork coverings–autumn was definitely the theme, with counterpanes of rich browns, golds, oranges, a kaleidoscope of autumnal colors surrounded the room in a warm embrace.

    A beautiful and bountiful refreshment table of punch and an assortment of homemade cookies was served to accompany the feast for the eye presented by the many patterns, sizes, themes represented by the outstanding craftsmanship on displayed in the coverings.

    Peggy De La Vernge was the Mistress of Ceremonies as focus moved to the front of the church where she had a multitude of quilts spread in layers on a bed. Her two assistants gently held up each quilt in gloved hands as Peggy told the story of the quilt–to whom the piece belonged, what history was known of the quilt as well as many well placed lessons about quilting’s history, fabrics and their time periods.

    Mary Yantis thanked Peggy at the end of the program for her hard work in putting this program together and it was extremely evident that much time, work, and thought had gone into creating this wonderful event.
