History

The quilt was made by a church ladies guild in North Carolina, USA about 1967 for Betty Wootton. It was sent to her when she was living in Seoul, South Korea where she was working with her husband for the Presbyterian Missionary Society. When Betty returned from Korea in early 1969 she gave the quilt to her sister-in-law Glenda Wilkinson as she was returning overseas and wanted to leave it with someone who would appreciate it. It is rarely used.
