This quilt was first exhibited at the American Quilter's Society annual quilt show in Paducah, Kentucky, April 2002. It was also a part of the invitational AQS Author's UNITED WE QUILT traveling exhibit. This exhibit explained, "To trust in God gives confidence of an all loving and caring power that sustains man in every adverse situation. Francis Scott Key wrote of this in the STAR-SPANGLED BANNER. This trust was expressed once again in 1864, when the words "IN GOD WE TRUST" appeared on US coins."
