Jean Harris of Damariscotta created this quilt section, one of hundreds created for a political rally and based on the question, “what can I not bear to think of as lost forever in a nuclear war?”

Harris' quilt features seed packets and the words, "A Garden is a Lovesome Thing God Wot! Sow in Peace."
