Sunday Pics!

Isn't this a great photo??  I love the setting, the gathering of women, their wonderful 1910-ish clothing, and the ingenuity of their quilt frame!  The caption below accompanied the photo on Pinterest.

"Quilting Bee, circa 1910s The quilting frame was made of four pieces of wood clamped together with four iron clamps to form a square. Two of the iron clamps can be seen in this photo. The frame was held about 2-1/2 feet above the ground with four chairs. Two or three of the chairs can be seen in this photo. Four or more ladies could sit around the frame and work on the quilt at the same time."

A Blessed Sunday to You!
