The Town Quilt

Out on display for a limited time, there is a historic quilt from Belmont’s past upstairs in the Belmont Free Library. Made in 1931 and was made for the library by the American Legion as part of the New York Quilt Project. With a length of 86 inches and a width of 73 inches, it is a large piece of history. The quilt type is classified as “friendship,’ with the materials being cotton, a solid design of red and white, with no sashing. The quilt can be displayed for three months at a time safely before being returned to storage. Come see this piece of our town’s history!

About Curtis Decker

Happy to be here and to open the library to all in need. I love talking about stories, drawing, farming, and hiking. Come in for books, conversations, and to share in the atmosphere of our historic small town library. A magical place of stories and wonder.
