Inspiration: Part 1
If you google "quilting bee" you may become as disappointed as I did to learn that there really isn't much accurate historical information on the Internet. I've even gone in search of articles in the UW library's online database and found very little in the way of written accounts of quilting bees. Even more difficult to find are photographs (or drawings, paintings for that matter) of quilting bees in action. So, here is the first installment in a list of inspirational elements: The Quilting Bee by Grandma Moses (1950). In tandem with this project, I hope to find more artifacts and historical accounts.
