A ... "Show-off Quilt"

I stumbled upon this question somewhere...sometime ago on the web... and would like to share it....


What possesses a woman to cut out tiny pieces of fabric and spend hours and hours sewing them together?   The words of one help explain: "I made quilts as fast as I could to keep my family warm . . . and as pretty as I could to keep my heart from breaking." So while many quilts were made for functional purposes, and some were made for personal pleasure, some were also made to "show off."
