North Halifax quilting ladies

The exhibit is a salute to the North Halifax Quilting Ladies and focuses on the history and purpose of the group and information on the art of quilting. Pictured in front of a pieced quilt in the Double Wedding Ring pattern are the quilting ladies, whose efforts over the years have raised funds to support the North Halifax Volunteer Fire Department.
