- - Lura Stanley was interviewed on September 28, 1978, at her home. Geraldine Johnson described Mrs. Stanley's quilts as "truly exquisite." She grew up on a farm and learned to quilt as a child, worked as a school teacher, and now makes quilts for herself and her family. She also has some older quilts which she bought at auctions. The highlights of this interview include Mrs. Stanley's comments on individual quilts as they were photographed.
- - Transcription: LS: There's right many things goes into the beauty of a quilt. I'm not the best, I'm not so good on selecting colors. I try to, finding the material to go in it is one thing, knowing what should, would be good is one thing, and then finding it is another thing. Finding the material that you, I'd love to do a Lone Star quilt, in different shades of orange, maybe, or something like that, just go from dark to light, but finding that material is another thing. Oranges and browns, I'd just love to do one, going from dark to light and then back to dark again.
