Dresden Plate with Ice Cream Cone Border- Dated- SOLD

(Item: Q-709)

Offering this nice Dresden Plate quilt from the Dorthy M Cannon Bass estate from Rocky , Oklahoma. Rocky, Oklahoma is in Washita County and was Indian Territory in 1800's. The quilt is in excellent condition and has been washed and is ready to enjoy. It is all hand quilted at 8-9 spi. On 3 sides of the quilt is an ice cream cone border. A beautiful sunny yellow ground for the plates. The separate pink binding is stitched on by hand. The plates are appliqued down by machine. On the back corner is hand stitched on and says" made MAMA CANNON 1940's". I found alot of history with this family and some of their quilts are shown in the Oklahoma Heritage Quilts book by the Oklahoma Heritage Quilts Project. On page 82 and 83 of the book is some of the families  history.   Some of it includes information, that "there were 3 maiden sisters that farmed their land with a team of horses. They had promised their mother on her deathbed that they would never marry, and they were true to their word." There will be some other quilts from this families estate, a couple are in the Oklahoma Heritage Quilts Book.  Quilt was made, most likely by Dortha Cannon.

Circa:  1940's
