[Introduction] Since April 1976, a group of 15 artistic women accomplished in stitchery and sewing have been at work creating the Cedar Mill Heritage Quilt. Each of its 15 squares depicts an historical landmark of the Cedar Mill area. Some of the subjects no longer exist, but are still vivid in the memories of the large number of our neighbors who were born here or who have lived here for many year's. Each individual chose her' subject and designed her picture. Dolly Freed, a local artist and photographer, took pictures or' provided drawings and guidance for those who wished it. The quilt border of sky blue and earth brown is quilted in the traditional mountain stitch, chosen because our area lies on the west slope of the Tualatin Mountains. The mountain stitch inspired the design of the cover of this booklet. Over 1,200 hours of work have cone into the creation of this quilt.
