Move forward to the 1930’s, and you’ll see patterns such as feed sack, yo-yo, wedding ring, flower basket and tulip quilts, plus a “trip around the world” postage stamp quilt with over 9000 pieces. Contemporary and reproduction quilts include appliqué, Dear Jane, a reproduction of a 1776 Hession Soldier quilt, and a quilt made for Indiana’s Bicentennial.
