Emma's notes in her scrapbook say, she cut the pieces herself. The border materialized out of a dream Mrs. Scapel had. Quilted on the whoops. Made a stencil of feather design for the quilting.
Emma gave a quilt like this, but with larger pieces for a raffle and it brought $48. Allan ??
Note--This sure makes me wonder how many hours Emma quilted in a day. Seems she did have
friends that influenced her quilts. Did they also quilt? Was there a group of quilters? Emma has
many scrapbooks in the collection. I have purposely resisted even opening them. such a rabbit hole. Are there other clues. I sure am not a scholar. Emma had a long, long friendship with Carrie Hall. There are many letters from Carrie. They talked about quilting and Carrie even sent Emma a pieced block. Carrie admired Emma's Lady at the Spinning Wheel Quilt. Carrie says she made one like it in black, gave to a niece. Sure wonder where that is today.
