Pope County Museum A-Z is a continuing feature of our blog. Periodically, I will highlight an item or items from our Museum collection.
Quilt blocks were sold to individuals as a money maker for the church for 15 – 25 cents. The buyer then wrote his or her name on the block in chalk. The Ladies Aid group then embroidered in the names and stitched the blocks together. “East Zion 1924 L.A.S.” is printed in the center of the quilt. There are 288 6 x 3.5″ signature blocks.
