Prize and Clue #3

Time for another clue about why this quilt top is "special", maybe a better way to say it is "historically interesting"! Remember this is a quilt shown at a MOKA meeting by our speaker, Terry Clothier Thompson.

But first, a friend of mine who does not have a blog has e-mailed her guess to me. It was incorrect but I wanted to let everyone know who doesn't have a blog and also can't figure out how to post a comment, you may e-mail your guess to me and I will publish it in the next post afterwards. I'll keep track of the time your e-mail reaches me. Just click on "View my complete profile" to get to the e-mail option.

Everyone may guess as often as they like until someone comments with a correct answer. In the past few posts, I've asked you to comment to my original post. From now on, just comment on my most recent post.

Also, how about another part of the prize?!? I've added a "Pin Picker Upper".

These are neat because it expands to help you reach pins which have fallen on the floor or into hard to reach spots! Its silver too.

A recap of the clues so far:

Clue #1 - The hexagon quilt was made at the turn of the century.

Clue #2 - Women were not allowed to verbally express their political viewpoints.

Clue #3 is this picture:
Disclaimer - This isn't real money, just play money I found in Wal-Mart's party section. Pretend its real money, OK? If I had this much money, I wouldn't be blogging. I'd be at my LQS!


  1. Hmmmm - celebration of the US Mint something or other. Number of hexagons equal number of pounds of gold or silver in the US Mint in the beginning or something close to that. (But how does women not having a political say fit in? HMMMMMMMMMMMMM????)

  2. OK, I only see one GOLD hexagon(coins) in the entire quilt among all the SILVER hexagons (coins). I think the one gold hexagon has a special meaning but don't know what. Looking for gold or finding gold. Back to thinking about this some more.

  3. I think it may have something to do with woman gaining tht ritht to vote and be elected to an office. This is my last guess...
