The Woods Hole quilt is a communal work of art created by friends of the Woods Hole Public Library as a gift to the Library and the community, as well as a fund-raiser for the Library. A Library image in the center of the quilt is surrounded by renderings of the post office, Community Hall, WHOI’s Bigelow Laboratory cupola, Taft’s Playground, MBL’s Candle House, Bradley House, the Woods Hole School, the bell tower, Nobska Lighthouse, a Spritsail, a harbor seal, and two biological illustrations. About twenty artists and quilters worked on the quilt in 2006 and 2007, and it was hung in the Library stairwell in early 2008.
Notecards depicting high-quality images of each quilt square are available for sale in the library. The cards are printed on white card stock and are 5.5” high and 4.5” wide. A postcard of the same size displays the entire quilt.
A single card with envelope is priced at $1.50. Eight cards are being sold for $10.00. A complete set of cards (18 cards plus 4 postcards of the whole quilt) is priced at $25.00 and is packaged in a clear plastic sleeve with ribbon. A single postcard is priced at $1.25 or 12 for $10.00.
These cards make wonderful thank you notes and invitations. The complete set makes a nice gift! Profits from the sales support the library.
