We love show and tell! Our members bring quilts, both old and new, to our meeting to display and tell bits of information about how they were made or for whom. Often we merely enjoy looking at others' work with awe. In either case, show and tell is one of the most popular portions of our guild meeting.

It was obviously made by a person interested in horses. The quilt was given to the Jacksonville Museum Quilters by Robinson Collins who had purchased it at an auction held by the Rogue Art Gallery. It had been presented to them by the mother of Ginger Rogers (Lela Rogers), who said it had been a gift to the star.
