Fort Bragg Soroptimists Donate Railroad Themed Quilt to the Mendocino Model Railroad & Historical Society (MCMR&HS)

Quilting is a very active pastime in Fort Bragg and along the immediate coast. The annual quilt show has amazing quilts in on display in local business and a school. The weekend of the annual show is a big draw for residents and visitors alike. In a recent exhibition one complex quilt done by a lady was mirrored by a “quilt” made by her husband from wood. For a small town the skills are awesome.

The MCMR&HS has two large G Scale layouts and a Museum. Club Members thought that the offer of a railroad themed quilt would be a delightful addition to the artifacts we have on display. The quilt came to us unframed. Lonnie Dickson, a club member agreed to frame it, You can see it below in all its glory.

A very good friend of my wife Sarah heard of what the club was creating and made a donation the cost of the materials.

Club Member Frank Smith was kind enough to take the photos.
