From our friends at mylafayettetravel.com: On Tuesday, July 16, 2013, the Lafayette Consolidated Government elected officials and staff and members of Quilters’ Guild Acadienne  unveiled the Marquis de Lafayette Quilt at the Lafayette Consolidated Government atrium at City Hall, 705 W. University Ave.  The Marquis quilt was created to honor the 250th anniversary of the birth of the Marquis de LaFayette, a native of France and American Revolutionary War hero and for whom the City of Lafayette is named. It has been displayed in Washington, D.C. and other venues.

This is so cool! The Marquis quilt will be on permanent loan and displayed at City Hall where it can be viewed by the public, so take a few minutes to go by and see it!
