Quilt Has 120 Autographs
This quilt which is in cream, rose and green has on it the autographs of 720 members of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Wayne. It will be on exhibit at the Quilt Antique and Hoby Show to be held at the Church April 10.

There are 20 blocks in the quilt 36 names being written on each and so arranged as to be well balanced throughout.

On Tuesday, April 19, the members of the Bona Fide Society are planning to have an exhibit of quilts, antiques and hobbies at the church and without a doubt this quilt will be one of the highlights of the occasion. Even before it was finished, women of other churches had heard about its success and were asking for the pattern.

The exhibit will be held in the gymnasium of the church during the afternoon and evening.
