The June 21, 1894 issue of the Sentinel countered with another story entitled "Only Part of the Quilt Story" which reprinted the Advocate article and added the following:
That is only part of the story and Mrs. Frizzell is still far in the rear. Mrs. Francis L. Criswell, of Daniel, this county has a single quilt that contains 2088 more pieces that both of the Howard county quilts together. An account appeared in the SENTINEL April 28th, as follows:
A correspondent at Daniel writes: "In response to the query, in the last issue of the SENTINEL, concerning quilts, we state the following: Mrs. Francis L. Criswell, of Daniel, has pieced a quilt containing 10,030 pieces. Carroll County is still ahead,"
Daniel was also home to the Independent Order of Good Templars, one of the the manyt fraternal societies that dominated the Carroll County landscape years ago.
