Diaries divulge links to quilters’ legacies

This “Cathedral Window” quilt was made last winter by 14 members of the Ouray County Historical Society’s quilting team, led by Sue Hillhouse. Fabrics are from a 1960s and ‘70s collection that belonged to the mother of the society’s president. Sized to fit a full/queen bed, the quilt will be raffled as a benefit for the historical society and museum. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5. It is on display at the Museum Store and Research Center on Main Street in Ouray.

No doubt needles are as essential to a quilter as hammers are to a carpenter. We couldn’t do the job without them, by hand or by machine. Still, we don’t give them much thought…
