Stagecoach Days in Mantorville, MN was wonderful this year! The Dodge County Historical Society put on a quilt show, featuring a 1918 Red Cross Signature Quilt, and the 2012 Red Cross Signature Quilt created by my sister-in-law and myself.
The weather was blistering hot, so lots of folks were happy to come into the museum to take advantage of the air conditioning. :) In the meantime, they got to see some wonderful quilts and learn about the World War I vets of Dodge County.
We sold lots of books, and it was my great joy to help a woman named Gloria find her father's name on the 2012 quilt that lists all the WWI vets of Dodge County, MN.
Here are some photos from that day!
