Quilt Walk, Panguitch, Utah 1864

Fairholme member, Virginia, came across Paguitch and its commemorative quilt while visiting the tourist information office for the Red Canyon in Utah, USA recently, and she knew our readers would be interested in the quilt and the history behind it:

The commemorative quilt was created by Elaine Hatch Sawyer
using her grandmother's treadle Singer sewing machine.
It was quilted by Maty Ella (Prince) Sudweeks and
Metta Jane (Wilcox) Whittaker.

Thank you for the photos and the story, Ginnie.
