Red and Green Quilt
from the cover of Quilters Newsletter
Ricky Clark died recently in Oberlin, Ohio. She was a quilt scholar who did much to move quilt history from imaginary tales of pioneer women to research based on geography, culture, genealogy and style.
She was the lead author on the Ohio Quilt Project book,
one of the best of the project books.
She specialized in Ohio quilts and red and green applique.
Quilted Gardens: Floral Quilts of the Nineteenth Century
The best way to celebrate her life might be with some "quilted gardens," a small show of red and green florals
from various online auction quilts.
