Notes
-  The following information was supplied by the quiltmaker:
-  Quilt size: 104" x 90"
-  Where did you learn the pattern? "It appears in a number if quilt reference books."
-  How did you choose the materials used in your quilt? "The fabrics were chosen for color and value. The quilt also contains one fabric from the 1930's and one from late 1800's. The rest are c. 1970-1989."
-  How long have you been making quilts? "Since 1976." / How did you learn to quilt? "From a class at a local fabric store."
-  Has being a winner in the Land's End contest made a difference in your life? Has it changed the way you look at your work as a quilt maker? "I received some local publicity. Some much more rewarding things were precipitated by that quilt than the winning of the Lands' End contest. Winning or losing a contest has never changed the way I look at my work as a quiltmaker, quilting teacher, or as a person."
