Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Interesting Story, and a great old quilt.
It is amazing how much they were able to accomplish without modern day conveniences & then have time to sew, read, sing, etc. If I quilt, I think I have had a busy day!

Thanks for sharing. These times were difficult in comparison to now, but in some ways, simpler. I think I could have been happy back then.
Thank you for the link. I have often wondered what our fore mothers' faces would look like and what their thoughts would be if they could see what we have to work with now and they did such beautiful work with such basic supplies. My Dad had to quilt as a boy. He and his brother and sister had to join Granny quilting at night. Said they had to or they wouldn't have had any bed covers.
Thanks for sharing this. I love the old pictures of real life in the Depression era. We have it so easy now.
Thanks for sharing. I grew up in that era in NYC where we felt the depression in a different way. No food to cook until papa brought home his paycheck. Not very much for a family of five. remember Mama starching the hell out of a pair of holey cutains to hang in the kitchen window. No other food except what you could afford to buy at the store, local not supermarkets. I was very little but it evidently made quite an impression on me as I still remember, and always have a full pantry and fridge.
what history is stored in these wonderful color photos, thanks for the link...
