1700s to 1970

Lin Keller and Susan Dilorio
examining quilts

Nice layout

featuring overall and details

info about communities

a range of styles and dates for those who love 1930s quilts and crazy quilts.

Regional curiosities such as this pattern from the early 20th century

which the locals seem to call Flowers & Bubbles.

They included quilts of interest made elsewhere like
this sampler from Miami County, Ohio

And quilts made in the county but held elsewhere,
such as this one from the Texas Quilt Museum.
