"Two women examine the award winning quilts on display at the 1947 Illinois State Fair."
Double Wedding Ring, Cathedral Windows, Grandmother's Flower Garden, Irish Chain
These are not at all unexpected as favorite 1947 quilts. Wouldn't it be fun to be able to see them in color?! The photo also provides a fun little glimpse of ladies' dresses, hats, and bags of the time.
The photo is in the extensive collection of the Illinois Digital Archives.
