Emma Andres First Quilt Tiger Lily

Tiger Lily

While working in her father's cigar store in Prescott Arizona, Emma saw an advertisement for a quilt in the Woman's World, January 1931 magazine.  She sent for the pattern and began her love affair with quilts, quilting, and quilters.

My First Quilt, made quilting design on plain block from pattern of the figured ones.
Quilting done on my lap after basting on linoleum in dining room.

Tiger Lily, an adaptation from a characteristic block
first made in Pennsylvania sometime
before 1837 and always a favorite.


  1. That is a beautiful quilt and I love the matching quilt designs in the solid blocks.
