The Friends Quilt and Banner

For the University's centennial celebration in 1989, members appliqued a quilt that highlighted twelve campus landmarks. The quilt is now displayed in a special case located at the entrance to the Mari Michener Art Gallery.

A quilted banner was made for use in the Greeley Independence Stampede parade as well as the University's Homecoming parade. When not is use for these events, the banner hangs in Michener Library.
