I did a major restoration job on this heirloom quilt. For before and after photos, close-ups of the fabrics I used, etc. read, Pinwheel Quilt - The Fabrics and The Repair.
The quilt owner supplied the history and this great family photo.
Here's the who's who:"The old couple on the left are my great grandparents Col. Mark and his wife Nancy Wayne Mark. Several of their children are in the photo. My grandmother, Millie Mark Fitzgerald is standing directly to the right of two of her brothers. My mother is the little girl on her brother’s shoulders. They had moved to a farm near Portland from Jamestown, North Dakota after my grandparents separated. I think the photo must have been taken over 100 years ago. These three women each had a hand in the quilt. "
Read on! The family zig-zagged across this country. It's quite a tale.
