This is not filled with any sort of batting. Just the quilt top backed by the green calico.
And this priceless old quilt top also has no batting but is backed with muslim. Was it a bed cover? a table cloth?
It is obviously used and somewhat worn in spots. There are 35 squares and each was embroidered by a different woman and signed with her name.
Three squares include the date, "1933". One declares, "Manassa, Colorado, 1933".
Opal was 21 years old in 1933, a young mother of two daughters. This was her square.
Most or many of the women are relatives of my mother-in-law.
Opal's maiden name was De Priest.
Mabel is Opal's mother, Becca's great-grandmother.
Mabel's maiden name was Crowther so this is a relative, too.
Another one says "Grandma Crowther" so that would be Becca's great-grandmother.
Can't wait for you to touch it Becca!
