Vickie Rammel hopes to be reunited with a quilt that is part of her family’s history. The quilt was made by Vickie’s grandmother, Carabelle Jones. It was sold at auction in Spring Valley, Ohio sometime in the late 1970’s or early 1980’s. The family thinks it may have been bought by a person in Florida.
The quilt is a full size bed quilt. It has approximately 365 silk squares featuring signature of famous people. The signatures are embroidered. It has a label handsewn to the back with Carabelle’s name.
Vickie writes, “We have searched for many years to at least know where this quilt is. As a girl growing up we anticipated the signatures that included, Charles Manson, Elvis and Ronald Reagan, coming in the mail. It is a part of my family history that I am afraid I will never be able to share with my now grown children. It was featured once in Ohio Magazine in the late 70’s to early 80’s. We would just like to know where it is and who owns it.”
