My little contribution is to the left of Flora. We are drawing to the end of Flora's year of being Sheriff and being in charge of our group. She's done a fabulous job. Of course from Flora and the other presenters I learned new things about the women and quilts of the 30s. I don't know about where you live but 30s reproduction fabric is not as abundant as it once was. In fact, some of our local stores are clearing it out altogether! I talked a little about fabric from the 30s both vintage and reproduction. I also discussed Japanese reproduction and the wonderful fabric that is imported from Japan in 30s designs.
Laura talked to us about food and the kitchen of the typical woman in the 30s. This picture is blurred but there are some foods introduced in the decade of 1930-1939. Laura brought us tootsie pops (1931 I think). And just like giving a child a sucker to keep them quiet, the tootsie pops kept us busy.Paula showed us vintage and reproduction quilts from her stash.Bonnie taught us about development, naming and distribution of the quilt patterns in the 1930s.From Flora's stash. This is one of Darlene Zimmerman's patterns.This yo yo quilt of Debbie's was worn through the ages almost to a lace.
Lori's reproduction quilt tops.Just as in life, we owe so much to those quilters that went before us. We belong to a group of wonderful industrious women that love fabric and creating beautiful things.
