Clawson Historical Museum Quilts At the CAMEO Quilt Guild Show

The CAMEO Quilt Guild mets in Clawson, MI. Quilts donated to the Clawson Historical Museum were displayed at the show this weekend. They are in delicate condition and were displayed on quilt racks. The display was in the lobby and the lighting was not the best.

 A very pretty quilt with lots of red, white and blue by Mrs. Malone circa 1920.

The sashing fabric on this quilt was startling and wonderful.

 By Mabel Davis Hodges, top completed circa 1920 and quilted in 1979 by Delores Kumler.


This quilt with the cigar flannels is owned by the Burns family and was on loan for the exhibit.
 Embroidered silks crazy quilt is not in the traditional crazy quilt setting.  Crazy Quilt top by Martha Morrison Davis circa 1890, silk, satin and velvet.

Friendship Quilt by Ida Hames circa 1920, "This red and white bow-tie quilt was begun in the later 'teens or early 1920s as a fundraiser for the Clawson Methodist Episcopal Church. The quilting was completed in 1978 by the Senior Citizen Women.

Very faded and badly shredded, a simple one template quilt.

 Love the windowpane plaid!
I would love to see this quilt laid out on a bed! It was called a candlewick quilt. Perhaps some day I will see if I can have a private viewing and get better photos.
