A crazy quilt made by Ida Huffsmith Metzgar


The newest exhibition at the Stroud Mansion features quilts and quilting artifacts from the Monroe County Historical Association’s collection.

On display are nine quilts made in and around Monroe County between 1850 and 1955, including:
  • An appliqued red calico “Friendship” quilt made by Caroline W. Rodgers in 1850
  • A “Hearth and Home” autograph quilt assembled by Nora O. Hohenshild in 1898
  • A “Log Cabin” quilt backed with fabric printed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Lafayette’s return to America
  • A patchwork 1880 “Kaleidoscope” quilt, made by Eliza Miller Edinger.
Also on display are a large assortment of handmade applique and quilting templates, along with piecework samples, all made and used by local Monroe County families.

The quilt exhibit will be on display until Friday, September 22, 2017.

Buy a chance to win this quilt in a raffle to benefit the Monroe County Historical Association. The “Split Nine Patch Variation” quilt measures 59 inches x 71 inches and was handmade by the members of the Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild. Raffle tickets cost $5 each or five for $20, and can be purchased at the Stroud Mansion.

The drawing will be held at the MCHA’s annual meeting and luncheon on February 25, 2018.
