Emma Andres Sixth Quilt Rainbow Quilt

Rainbow Quilt
McKim Studio
Ready Cut $4.00

Emma made her sixth quilt  in 1932. The first quilt she quilted on her new "whoops".  She added a green border.  Sent the quilt to her sister Alice for a raffle. Whereabouts unknown.

Note-- this original page was not in Emma's scrapbook when I purchased the collection.  I found the original in the archives of Joyce Gross in the Briscoe Center. Joyce befriended Emma in the latter years of Emma's life.  Emma sent several of her scrapbooks to Joyce.  Joyce wrote about Emma in her  Quilters' Journal, Summer 1981
