Submitted our haiku per instructions for competition @ Oregon Community Foundation Facebook’s page for this year’s grant contest.  Next year we will have to have a contest to see who of our members, and friends of Douglas County, Oregon can come up with the best.  The winner gets theirs submitted!!  Good idea?? !!

Quilt show this weekend!

This weekend is a quilt show sponsored by the South Umpqua Historical Society.  The show will be held at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, right off of I-5.

We are entering a crazy quilt made in 1890, by a daughter of Douglas County pioneers. Her name was Lillie Moore. Without her, there may have never been a museum in Roseburg, nor a “Douglas County Historical Society.” She played a pivotal part in that history here in Douglas County. The photos included here are some I took for our Umpqua Trapper article, “A Pictorial History of the Moore Family History.” The snapshot article about the article 😀 is here: http://www.douglascountyhistoricalsociety.org/…/a-pictoria…/

We hope that you will stop by the quilt show and see the true art that is being displayed. Be sure you stop by and visit our crazy quilt, and remember that the Floed-Lane Museum @ 544 SE Douglas St. is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 1-4pm, and currently free to tour.

Lillie L. Moore, daughter of Douglas County Pioneers, made this quilt in 1890.
