Welcome, Share, Converse ...

~ PLEASE leave a comment & SHARE ANY CLUES! ~ THANK YOU~

We started this not only to research the quilt, but also the story behind a group of friends, family or community around the quilt. Upon looking into the early 1900’s brings to life the history of WHEN the quilt originated. It is our hope that we can find out more about the women who started the quilt, the varying dates (1903-1908) signatures, names, and locations as well as the occasion behind the quilt. We know that life gets busy and hope that this leads us all to better document our work, as well as FINISH what we start

~ thank you to Shirley for finding the squares ~ finishing THE QUILT & sharing it with us!
