Help us identify this quilt....

In preparing for the 125th Anniversary, we have been given a vintage quilt with a number of names on it, we aren't sure if it from the church or if it is a community item. Based on the maiden/married names on the quilt we have narrowed it to between 1927 and 1930. Does anyone have more information on what it was created for, or who created it?

Email if you have more details.
