Quilters Needed For Bicentennial Project

The Greenville Bicentennial Committee is teaming with the Creative Stitchers, a local quilting guild, to create a special quilt to celebrate the community’s 200th birthday this year. The quilt, featuring past and present Greenville landmarks, will be completed by this summer.

Nancy Gillard, project chairperson, said they are looking for quilters to create blocks depicting landmarks, such as the courthouse and public library, incorporating the green and blue colors in the Bicentennial logo. There will be two sizes of quilt blocks: 12.5 inches x 12.5 inches or 6.5 inches x 6.5 inches. Gillard said they can be embroidered or pieced. All blocks must be completed by February 28.

For more information or to select a landmark for the block, please contact Nancy at 664-9342.
