In 1998, the Summer in St. Louis, MO was a scorcher. I remember working on this quilt in my basement studio and even that area was warmer that I would have liked. It was also the Summer of my mom and dad’s fiftieth wedding anniversary. The inspiration for this quilt was as antique quilt (photo in black and white) that was featured in a small book titled American Pieced Quilts by Jonathan Holstein. I had acquired the book in the mid-nineties and it was published prior to that.
