Ruth Lee was born in Nebraska and moved to Kansas at the age of three. She liked to tell the story of tumbling out of the wagon and rolling under the wheel, but suffering no serious damage to her daughter Loretta.
She was an excellent seamstress and earned money tailoring furs and remaking men's suits into women's. This quilt was made in 1930 and is about 70" x 90." It is made from cotton and hand pieced and hand quilted. Of all of the thousands of Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts, this one stands above the others.
