|Vintage Detroit New Quilt Pattern shared by Theresa Nielson|
|5th Detroit New Quilt Show in 1938|
The first Detroit News Quilt Show winning quilt was based on the pattern series of Horoscope symbols, as seen in the pattern below which was shared with me by Theresa Nielson last month.
Beth shared 1930s quilts from her collection. Sadly I forgot my camera and only had my cell phone for photos.
quilt made by Jane Austen and her mother.
