My friend, Susan, had a top created by her relatives who were living in Missouri in the late 1930’s. They took what they had in the way of flour sacks and leftover material from aprons and other clothes to created a signature quilt. The names were embroidered after being written onto the material in pencil and the whole thing stitched together into a top.
Some blocks were hand stitched, some were machine stitched….there were puckers and volcanoes and open seams galore to remedy and repair. But it is quilted!!!
Perle cotton #12 in the big stitch tradition. Orange peel petals, echo quilting and straight lines.
Hoping to have it labeled and bound by the end of May!!
