On this July 4 we brought back the puzzle for American Life.  Okay it's 1930 not 2011, but it's a fun quilt.  How fast can you do this?


In 1930, Mrs. Cecil White created a quilt with vignettes of American Life.  Her style seems similar to cartoon art.  She included everything from a shoe shine parlor to an elopement and a trolley ride.  The quilt is 77" x 66" and made mostly of cotton fabric.  It is hand appliqued and quilted.  Not much is known about Mrs. Cecil White but anyone can enjoy her look into everyday life in 1930.
