Quilts, pictures, and total frustration
I just realized that I've spent 8 hours working on quilt class registration information, and haven't watered the lawn, fed the cat, or called out for pizza. I do have beautiful informative quilt class registration and information forms, except for the minor problem of no picture of the 1896 quilt. which was made in 1896, in North Carolina. Sally Buck made the quilt as a gift for the infant Ruth Pearl Mallard. Family legend says that Aunt Sally was less than pleased when the baby wasn't named after her, and never made another quilt for the Mallard children. The quilt is red and indigo blue. Indigo dyed, not just indigo colored, it is hand pieced and hand quilted.
