4917 - 1930ís Quilt   ($94.75)
Audrey Arno
Tuttle, OK    USA

Width: 9"   Length: 9"

Materials/Techniques: Black and white prints, with plain grays and blacks and touches of colored fabrics in most blocks.

Artist's Statement: These are all four grid blocks found in Jinny Beyer's Quilters Album of Patchwork Patterns which also lists the names of quilters who published the block along with the dates and places. Not all of these blocks were new in the early thirties, but they all were published somewhere then. The depression era made life during that time hard for many and often solemn, but with moments of gaiety and fun. The fabrics used are intended to represent that.
Audrey Arno

Dedication: To those who lived before us.
