St. Anthony Students Present Quilt to Library

April 8, 2002


On April 8, 2002, the fifth grade class of St. Anthony School presented the Nesbitt Memorial Library with a handmade, patchwork quilt which includes depictions of various tribes of Texas Indians. Each student picked a Texas Indian tribe and painted a scene which showed the mode of dress and other aspects of the daily lives of the Indians. The scenes were then sewn into a quilt. The students completed the quilt by knotting it with beads and buttons, and adding beaded fringe-work. The new quilt will hang at the edge of the children’s section of the library, adjacent to another Texas history quilt honoring the settlement of Colorado County which was made by St. Anthony School eighth graders and donated to the library on May 21, 1997.
