It's taken 39 years, but finally, Altadena's bicentennial quilt is permanently displayed at archives. Thanks in part to a huge discount from Aarnun Gallery and Framing in Pasadena, we ordered a professional UV protected plexibox for the quilt. Last week it was installed and Mary Smeritsnig (below right) who made a square depicting Farnsworth Park's Davies building was there for the very informal installation.

The Altadena Library and Friends Bicentennial Quilt is the handiwork of twenty eight women. Completed in 1976, the 6'x6' quilt features 36 blocks, each telling one part of the Altadena story.
