Photo Gallery / Louisiana's Bicentennial Quilt

     The Louisiana Bicentennial Quilt, "Stitch by Stitch, Binding Together 200 Years of Louisiana History,” make its way to Cameron Parish on January 10, 2013 – January 12, 2013. The quilt was on display at the Cameron Library during the 55th Annual Louisiana Fur and Wildlife Festival.
     Louisiana celebrated its 200th anniversary of statehood in 2012 with the construction of an official "bicentennial quilt.” Each of the state’s 64 parishes is represented with a decorative block in the quilt.
     Cameron Parish’s block was made by Mrs. Lorine Baccigalopi, an expert needlewoman. Mrs. Baccigalopi is married to Whitney Baccigalopi and has lived in Grand Chenier, LA all her life. She learned to quilt from her mother at a very young age. Mrs. Baccigalopi, along with her sister, makes several quilts a year.
