1976.004.1 - Quilt

Bicentennial Quilt, 1976. Compiled by Eleanor D'Olivo, Rhode Island Arts and Crafts Chairman, from squares submitted by the states. This quilt is an embroidered variation of the "album quilt," which had its roots in Baltimore, Maryland in the mid-19th century. Although traditionally appliquéd, album quilts were generally created as special gifts, with various quilters providing the scenes that would tell a story or complete a sentiment. GFWC's Bicentennial Quilt not only celebrates an important moment in American history, but also echoes GFWC's long record of service supporting American culture, traditions, and historic landmarks.

1972.002.1 - Necklace

Necklace with 20 pins Assembled by Eva Perry Moore, GFWC President 1908-1912 Eva possibly collected the pins on the necklace from her travels. According to Mrs. Moore's great-granddaughter Elizabeth McNamara Liwo of Massachusetts, Eva Perry Moore's necklace of pins was donated to GFWC headquarters by Moore's daughter Elizabeth. Elizabeth Moore (1881-1973), a Vassar graduate like her mother, was a social worker in Saint Louis. The family speculates that Eva Perry Moore gathered the pins for the necklace on her travels. This seems to be confirmed by the recollections of Mary I. Wood in The History of the General Federation of Women's Clubs (1912), for which Eva Perry Moore wrote the pre
