The 90-inch by 65-inch quilt was started by Donna Waterbury who found images of trains and train crossings and transferred them on to fabric that she used for the quilt squares and decorated the quilt using red and dark blue for the outlines of the quilt blocks.
Waterbury then turned the quilt over to Betty Nafe, who hand-quilted the images and tied it and backed the binding. Waterbury began this project a couple of years ago and one day suggested to her husband, Richard Waterbury, if Jim Adamson of the Depot would be interested in this train theme quilt.
Also, Danny Speelmon of Cherokee donated a black leather jacket with the proceeds going to the Depot Group. You can purchase a chance for both items and check them out on display in the lobby at Central Bank in Cherokee.
