Emma Andres Twelfth Quilt Out Where The West Begins

Out Where the West Begins

This was Emma's original design.  Took over a year to complete.
The scrapbook says she dye the brown fabric around the pictures.

When Emma entered the quilt in the local fair years after it was completed, much was made about the swastika design in the border.  Of course most know the swastika design was not recognized as bad until after WWII.  The swastika was use in native Indian designs.
