Wachtel, a wholesale fabric representative for Wilmington Prints, viewed this snowy rural America anywhere fabric designed by John Sloane, an oil artist, and was inspired to piece together the quilt, adding the Lincoln signage to the Depot.

The quilting was done by Lori Elliott of the Make It So Shoppe in Lincoln.
