As we approached our 50th year, we thought about Lincoln as the “Star City” – the design was set! You will count 50 varied blue and purple stars, set in all white. The lower left feathered star is centered with 4 golden hearts. This pays homage to our 4 founding mothers: Louise Howey, Mary Ghormley, Betty Voss and Hazel Myers. The design radiates from that point, illuminating the love that was sent forth form the initial vision of those 4 wonderful ladies.
The lavender quilting holds more than 85 “shadow” stars. Those represent our Guild members that are no longer with us. We feel that every member, past or present, has brought us to this point in time, where we are constantly amazed at the good fortune that brought us all together for the love of quilting.
