detail of the quilt

The exhibit Suitably Attired features over two dozen items from the Emily Reynolds Historic Costume Collection at NDSU. It runs December 4 through February 24 at the Historic and Cultural Society of Clay County, in Moorhead, MN.
Clothing, shoes, hats and jewelry are included, plus one quilt. Here’s a peek at the quilt, made by Nettie Mason. She used acetate fabric left from her granddaughter’s wedding gown. Her granddaughter, Jean, married Bill Guy in 1943.

Jean’s wedding gown, made by Mrs. Hall, is displayed in front of the quilt.

Join QGND members Kim Baird (exhibit curator) and Susan Curtis (ERHCC collections manager) for the opening reception on Tuesday, December 4 from 3:00 to 7:00 pm, at the Hjemkomst Center. No charge.

A really hip suit from the 1970s!
