Oh, my! What a beautiful treasure! What do you know about Clara A. Hale? Is she a relative? Do you know where she lived?
Amazing! How did you come by this?
What a beauty. Wouldn't one of the quilt museums love to get their hands on this!
What a stunning piece of history
This quilt reminds me of a quilt a woman worked on for 55 years and gave to her son. I don't remember the womans name. Is this that quilt?
This quilt was made by Clara A. Hale while she was attending college during the years 1883-1887.
I just love antique quilts. Not only for the history, but I love seeing what materials they had available to them. And to think this was done entirely by hand...whew!
