Local quilters, friends and committee members of the Chapman-Hall House have produced an adaptation of a signature quilt from its collection, the Esther Jameson Newbert quilt, created in 1856. The contemporary version of the quilt will be raffled off after the close of the season for the historic site on Oct. 9. Tickets are available for purchase.

Among those whose signature can be found on the quilt is Don Carrigan of Channel Six News and Daisy Green, a well-known local artist. There are five blank squares for the lucky winner to personalize with names and/or verse.

The quilt square design is Cat’s Cradle. Each block is pieced with a combination of green fabrics plus white. The squares are bordered with a soft yellow print. At 78-inches-by-86-inches the Chapman-Hall House quilt varies from Esther’s by one inch.

Raffle tickets will be sold between noon and 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays at the Chapman-Hall House, 270 Main St. in Damariscotta. Tickets are also available by calling Natalie House at 563-8441. For more information, email [email protected] or visit lincolncountyhistory.org.
