New Beautiful Bronze Signs

The Texas Quilt Museum has had several new, permanent bronze informational signs installed in the period garden, called Grandmother’s Flower Garden (after a much beloved quilt block), next to the Museum. It’s all thanks to the generous support of lead donor The Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA), along with the Bybee Foundation, the Texas Women’s League, and the La Grange Lions Club.
The Museum selected fabricator Franklin Bronze Plaques for their 130 years of experience and their use of top-quality solid bronze alloy, approved by the Copper Development Association, since bronze is a copper-based alloy. Each piece is handcrafted, chased around each letter, border, and graphic to bring out crisp details in the signs, then sandblasted and sealed.
These beautiful bronze signs will withstand the onslaught of any kind of weather and only grow more attractive over the years!
