Quilt 9

Quilt 9 was created by interested teachers and classrooms that followed the 2011 Traveling Quilt project.  The teachers  submitted quilt squares, sending them in the mail with a request to be a part of a future quilt.

Terrie Hanke, 2006 Teacher on the Trail™ and Iditarod Educational Consultant, sewed the quilt together in September, 2011.  Terrie lives in Wisconsin.  Terrie is a member of the Iditarod Education Committee and volunteers for the race each year.
