This quilt belongs to my friend Leona Pelham and was made in 1918. Her grandmother gave it to her; it was made from the men's pants samples that a traveling salesman carried. What ingenuity! I love it; I think it looks like modern art. Its almost 100 years old and has kept a lot of people warm and happy.
I have always been an artist and with art quilts I have found a way to combine my two loves of painting and textiles.
