I think the quilts are hanging on a clothesline and they are standing proudly by. Some look quite stern, don't you think? The one in the front, especially.
This would be in the 1950s, I estimate. Mainly because of their dresses and the earrings on my favorite in front. And the hairdos. And the glasses. I love the aprons. I'm curious what the woman far left is holding.
Here's something to ponder. Notice that these quilts use a lot of white. Today's modern quilters are back to doing that.....hmmmmmm. What goes around comes around?
And now for a true prize, Cindy just sent this wonderful note about the photo:
My Aunt Lola was kind of a double aunt. She was Lola Schott, my Dad's sister, and married my Mom's brother, Augie Pierce. Uncle Augie was a favorite among cousins. Her name then was Lola Pierce. She is the one who called me Cynthy.
I am kind of thinking that photo may have been taken close to Thanksgiving or even Easter, based on the vegetation. I think the lady is holding a piece of cake. I thought the lady next to her had a stained apron. Then I started working with it, and discovered it is either a quilted design itself, or great just fabric. Lola was very attached to the Princeton Ladies' Aid Society, so I suspect those women were part of her group. Lola was a very sweet and generous person.
