This timeless traditional quilt dates back to the American Civil War. The original (shown on cover) is owned by Mary Bula Holman. About the quilt Mary says this:
My mom was born in 1917. She told me that her grandmother gave her the quilt when she was a girl, and that it wasn’t in good condition then. She didn’t know if her grandmother or great grandmother had made it.
By researching family records and the probable date the quilt was made, it has been concluded that the quilt was most likely made by Mariah Harrel Measells (1833-1926).
Here is a sample block using the hand-dyed fabrics.
