This quilt was a gift to Janet Perdue, age 10, from her mother, Helen Perdue in 1960. It was skillfully hand-sewn and hand-quilted by the Women’s Quilt Guild of Center United Presbyterian Church of New Castle, Pennsylvania.

The quilt design is on a white background with twelve Dresden plates with green centers and colorful fabric petals in greens, pinks, reds and blues and two green stripe borders.

The quilt was my prized possession and was on my bed through junior high and high school. Now 56 years later it is tattered and torn and it is my pleasure to include it in the quilt art project.
