Quilters

Quilters

Quilters is a musical about the blocks in the life of a pioneer woman and her six daughters. Each block of the quilt is a piece of life as seen by that particular daughter. The music was great, the acting good and the quilt fantastic.Any quilt is interesting but this one was incredible. It is used as the final backdrop for the play and has 16 blocks, each 36 by 36 inches for a 12 foot by 12 foot quilt. Additionally each block in the quilt is also used as a prop to represent a time in their lives. This meant that each piece had to be made twice. The material was donated by Feathered Star Quilt Shop of Clyde. The Abilene Quilters Guild donated the quilting. The quilters were Shula Patton, Loretta Starkey, Carolyn Davis, Sandy Nash and Regina Posta of the Abilene Quilters Guild. They only had 6 weeks to complete the quilt and props as Director Victoria Spangler was unaware of the complexity of making a quilt but they spent many evenings and late nights to meet the deadline.The quilt and props have been donated to Hardin Simmons University and the University will loan or rent it out to other groups wanting to do the play.
