Thursday afternoon I saw something amazing and beautiful - an antique Political Ribbon Quilt. This was a full sized quilt covered with antique ribbons from all over the country, along with a few pins and buttons. There did seem to be a focus on Mitchell, and even the Corn Palace, but there were many other locations and organizations represented.
I took a few photos, in particular of ribbons that were specific to Mitchell. I'm wishing I could have taken more pictures because there were some really interesting ribbons and pins. At this time, I don’t have any details on who might have made this beauty or who collected all of the ribbons. But I’m sure glad I got to see it in person.
