About the Bridge of the Gods Quilters:

QuildBlocks-1001In February 2003, a group of women met and began to learn to quilt, each making a Log Cabin Quilt.  From that group, the Bridge of the Gods Quilters began. These women come from North Bonneville, Stevenson, Husum, Cascade Locks, and Hood River. They meet weekly and the second Saturday of each month. Over the years, they have completed many quilts: many for Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital, to comfort community members, for kindergarten children when they were able to take a nap/rest during their school day, for community people in remembrance of a loved one, and during a period of time, “pet beds” (from fabric scraps) for local animal clinics. This community of quilters want to share their love of quilting and one member suggested the idea of quilt blocks on homes and businesses for others to enjoy. Enjoy our Bridge of the Gods Quilt Block Trail!
