It’s finished!  Quilt 9 is now an official Iditarod quilt and ready to be boxed up and mailed to the first quilt on quilt’s schedule.

Terrie Hanke, 2006 Teacher on the Trail™, Iditarod Educational Consultant, Education Committee Member, and race volunteer, completed Quilt 9’s construction this week and has readied the quilt for the year long journey!  That means, Quilt 9 is boxed up and ready to be  mailed!  A big thanks goes out to Terrie for her assistance with this project.

Quilt 3

29 08 2011

Quilt 3 is missing in action….  

Quilt 3 did not return from the journey during the 2010 – 2011 school year.

Last known whereabouts:

El Paso, Texas, and reportedly on the way to Houston, Texas.  This quilt may have gotten lost in the mail between schools or accidentally sent to a wrong school.  ‘Search’ parties have not yielded the quilt’s location.

If you have  knowledge of this quilt, please help return the quilt to the Iditarod Education Department.

Send an email to us!

Rest in Peace, Quilt 3.  You will be remembered and greatly missed….  This slideshow is to honor your memory.  If you have images of Quilt 3, please send them to me to include them in this memorial.
