Title
Mary Borkowski's "Pride of Ohio" Quilt
Caption
Quilt titled "Pride of Ohio" created by nationally recognized folk artist Mary Borkowski from Dayton, Ohio, 1969. The star on the map of Ohio represents the birthplace of astronaut and United States Senator John Glenn. The eight state seals represent the eight Presidents from Ohio. Around each seal are seventeen stars because Ohio was the seventeenth state to join the union. Ohio symbols such as the state flower, the carnation; the state bird, the cardinal and the state tree, the Buckeye are also found in the quilt design. The quilt is part of the Ohio Historical Society museum collections (AL03388).
