Luckily some of the names were quite unusual as it made it easier to find them on the US Census data. I wasn't sure if they were from the 1930s or 1940s but I think they are more likely to be pre-1940s. All of the quilters were listed as living in Marion, Daviess County in Missouri.
I don't know who the quilt would have been made for, perhaps it was to farewell Lura's relative who was widowed at a young age. I really enjoyed piecing the blocks together and I thought it would make a nice wall hanging or a table runner. I hand quilted 2 of the blocks and then removed the stitches as the batting was too puffy for that era. Cotton batting provided a more authentic finish and I used some vintage fabric from that era to bind it. I have a first finish for the year so I need to keep working to get some more done now.
Thanks for stopping by.
