This quilt top belongs to Ms. Joyce Williams, (my mommy), she has owned it for many years and agreed to show it during this event. Quilt makers have used dots for decades to beautify their quilts.
I thought it was interesting that the maker of this quilt did not cut off the salvege before using it in this quilt. My mother is not sure were she got the quilt top, but believes it came from one of my three great-aunts, the last one having pasted away two years ago at age 92. So how to date this quilt?
