Quilts Old and New
There were quilts in the historic 1887 Christ Church-Episcopal,
and in the 1880 Newbury House B&B.
There were quilts in private homes, such as the 1884 Ruralia,
and the historically-reconstructed Onderdonk House, which was originally built by and home to the carpenter/architect who built many of Rugby's original buildings, Cornelius Onderdonk.
The Rebecca Johnson Theater was the site of bed turnings featuring certified quilt appraiser Shari Pierce.
The ladies of the Rugby Quilters are to be congratulated for putting together such a well-received show. While this was their first, it definitely won't be their last. They just have to give their tired husbands a little time off first.
