The Quilt is signed by:
SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — The nonprofit group Friends of the South Berwick Library recently received an unusual donation: a handmade, wall-hanging-sized quilt with signatures from some of Maine's most prominent politicians.
Signatures on the quilt belong to former President George H.W. Bush, former first lady Barbara Bush, U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe, former U.S. Sen. Margaret Chase Smith and former Maine Gov. Edmund Muskie. The quilt was completed in 1996.
Susan Mills donated the quilt from the estate of her late mother, Theresa Mills, of Livermore, who died two years ago, just after her 80th birthday. According to Susan Mills, her mother was an avid quilter. "We'd get quilts from her every Christmas," she said. Mills senior belonged to a local quilting group in Livermore and was very active in that community.Read more...
