In most Fundraising quilts, names of donors are embroidered around a traditional quilt pattern. In this unusual quilt, the entire design is made of the embroidered names. It creates an interesting, spare, linear pattern. Within a star in the center of the quilt is the name of Reverend C.A. Butz for whom the quilt was evidently made, perhaps for his departure from the parish. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurements are 72" x 74".
