(Harriet Powers 1837 - 1910)
One of her first quilts (Bible Quilt shown below) was recorded as being at a Cotton Fair in 1886.The only other picture of a quilt I've been able to find is this one from which I'll do my adaptation. It has been referred to as Pictorial Quilt and was reportedly commissioned and made between 1895-98. This quilt measures 68 7/8" x 105". According to what I've read she did make more quilts but they may be in private collections.
Okay kiddies. Here is a teaser as I've not been able to hook much on it and want to keep the design a secret just a little longer until I've more to show. Since I finally got my shipment out just after noon today when the snow started wasn't able to start my project until recently. Then walk Ben, then get on the computer.
Who knows when I'll be able to post another update as I truly believe I will lose power sometime tonight or tomorrow with this blizzard. Right now it is just snowing without the white out drifts. Last I heard around noon was that we will get 6" - 10". When I'm done here will listen to the weather and get the latest. I've got my candles, batteries, water in the tub to fill up toilets ready. So what will be will be. Meanwhile I plan to hook til the power goes out.
Hunker down you guys, stay warm and stay safe.
