Square in a Circle Autograph Quilt -dated 1941-42 SOLD(Item: Q-710)
Offering this signed and dated Autograph or Friendship quilt. It has both men and womens names and in the center block it has,, "Champion 1941-42", so not sure what that might represent. Do we think it was a contest of some sort?? A great quilt with lots of names for research. There's 48 blocks with names in all except the one with the Campion. I acquired the quilt in Missouri. Some of the names on the quilt include Phyllis Dobbs, Wayne Sutherland, Elsie Hicks, Doris Hutchison, Little Joe Proctor, Amos Tate, Jerry Lord, Glenna Lambert, Lonnie Lee Mears, Joan Cooley and many more. The condition is very good and the quilt is all hand quilted at a really nice 10 spi thinking that probably one person did the quilting. For the binding the backing was brought forward to the front and machine stitched down. A very usable quilt that is clean and nice to add to a collection. Lots of fabrics and some are feedsacks..
