Notes
-  The following information was supplied by the quiltmaker:
-  Quilt size: 102" x 102"
-  How did you choose the materials used in your quilt? "A local quilter and business woman, Betty Cummings, selected the all cotton materials based on historical information. Students could select from a variety of prints and patterns. Each student designed and appliqued his or her square. Mrs. Cummings then arranged the squares (209) and arranged to have them quilted."
-  "The quilt was the 'masterpiece' of a unit on the westward migration of the pioneers, in particular, life along the Oregon Trail." It was their "first effort!"
-  What was your primary reason for entering the Lands' End contest? Do you frequently enter your quilts in competition? "The primary reason for entering the Lands' End contest was to obtain recognition for our students and our new school. Our students and their families were very proud of their work and we felt the quality of the work was superior."
