Recovered! Culture Quilt

Update: This quilt has been found! Alison contacted me to say that the person who quilted this also follows Lost Quilt Come Home, and has reached out to her. Questions answered and everyone involved is satisfied.

Alison Smith is looking for a quilt she made in 2002 while at East Tennessee State University.  Ali named her project “Culture Quilt”. This unique quilt is an original design, between single and double bed size, made of blue batik fabric for both the border and sashings.

I was contracted to teach the workshop and students made squares during the day which were incorporated into the quilt. Sorority Delta made a square and a Blind female among others participating.

Ali last saw this quilt in October, 2002 at East Tennessee State University. Ali reported, “This quilt was NOT stolen. I would like to know where it is so I can label it and give a brief story about the quilt. I didn’t do that 16 years ago. I was a new quilter.”

If you have any information about this Culture Quilt, please contact Allison Smith at Smithall27@gmail.com
