During Ethel's presentation, she mentioned another quilter, that I had never heard of (I don't think anyone in the audience had either). Albert Small. And you thought today's interest in hexagons was crazy!
This was his first quilt! Follow the link above to read his history and see his other quilts. Astounding!
On a slightly related note: I have finally made myself a name tag to wear at our guild meetings. I forgot it last night, of course. Fine: $.50.
Tomorrow is the reveal for the next Four-In-Art Quilt. Mine's done. (enough said) I am most looking forward to our next theme!
