Friendship Quilt


Friendship quilts were once all the rage. I've picked up bits and pieces of them over the years, but haven't seen one that's intact. Shari L. Wilson recently received this friendship quilt from her Aunt Janie Wilson. It is made of blocks that each have the signature of one of the women who made the quilt. Her Grandma Wilson and Aunt Ina Wilson each have a block. The quilt was made in 1940 when the women lived in southeast Kansas: Hiattville, Yates Center, and surrounding area.

Shari generously agreed to let me post it here. I love the old fashioned "t" at the end of Margaret.
