Don't you just love this photo??
It was taken in the last quarter of the 1800s in Sumter County, Georgia. It is of members of the Holloway family in front of their home.
The profusion of quilts on the fence is so amazing. I recognize many of the patterns....square in a square, flying geese over a pieced dog-tooth circle - two of them - (actually, maybe 3), pinwheel, Texas Tears. I love that we as women are the same then as now....wanting to share our handiwork.
You can see more about the photo (and zoom in on it) and read the names of the people here:
A Blessed Sunday to You!
