This quilt was made by Karen Mowery, Sewprimitive Quilter, who recently passed away. Her son, Tim, had the monumental task of sorting and disposing of his mother's quilts, crafts and household. This quilt and others were listed on eBay and I was the highest bidder on this one. I was unaware that it was reversible, so imagine my surprise when I opened the box and pulled out the quilt. I know I audibly gasped.
Another surprise: there was no label. I contacted Marcie Patch to get more information and she led me to this post on Karen's blog.
And so, I made a label for this quilt. This is by no means the full label as I cropped out some private information.
Do you label your quilts? This is a good example on why you should. This quilt's story could have ended abruptly like the antique and vintage quilts made by 'maker unknown'. Label, label, label!
