Hallowell’s Memory Quilt

Hallowell’s Memory Quilt. Some years back Nancy Bryant of Mechanic Falls donated a memory quilt to the local library. Quilts of this kind were often sewn by members of a church congregation or community group and given as a keepsake to a member who was moving from the area. Nancy said that the quilt was given to her by her mother-in-law Elsie Bryant and was thought to come from a church in Mechanic Falls. It was often used as a couch covering in the Bryant household.
