Well here are the final photos from last week's meeting! Barb G. brought some quilt ephemera that we all enjoyed looking at!
Cyndy brought in a signature quilt from the 19th century. I have to apologize, my photo was so blurry that I can't post it. All I have left are these close-ups. This is a fascinating piece. It not only has signatures, it is inscribed: "Made by the Ladies of the Presbyterian Society of Portland Pennsylvania March 1880"
Somethings from the 50s/60s
Other patterns that were much older!
A variety of patterns for feedsacks--or as Barb explained--Cotton Bags, the original name.
A truly polyester piece!!!
Postage stamp from the 70s--Barb had pieced this together!
And a delightful basket quilt with a variety of prints to examine!
Nine patch or white cross:
Close up of a signature:
This is what I brought in to share. It is a kit quilt from the 1950s
and a sweet grandmother's flower garden from the 1960s:
I won't be posting for the rest of the holiday. I wish each of you a happy and safe holiday. Happy Holidays!!!
