Rags and Tatters Design Finished in Three Weeks
By Edith B Crumb
Yesterday our newest member Mrs. G.N. Stott 1726 Bagley Avenue brought to the Quilt Club Corner meeting two quilt tops one the Oak Leaf and the other Rags and Tatters, both from News patterns.
This is the first Rags and Tatters top which has been brought to us and Mrs. Stott says that it took her about three weeks to make it.

The quit is in red, white and blue the gray patches representing the blue and the darker ones the bright red. This quilt is an ideal one for a boy’s room for boys like bright colors and conventional designs.

Each block in the Oak Leaf is in an individual color scheme, the background being white and the joining strips in light blue.

Now Mrs. Stott has the task of quilting these tops so that they will be finished for the Detroit News Quilt Show in the fall.
Mrs. Marian Ridler said to tell everybody that her first picnic will be held next Thursday, June 2 at the same place on Belle Isle. This means to meet at the shelter near the Schiller monument and bring your lunch. These picnics usually start about 11 a.m. and Mrs. Ridler says she has ordered first grade of weather with plenty of sunshine.

May Mancuse 1822 Division street has organized a little neighborhood quilt club which has just eight members ranging in age from six to 20. May doesn’t know what to call the club, so would be very grateful for suggestions. Just drop her a card. She will be delighted to hear from you.

Next week she will bring the 80 wash clothes which she has trimmed with hand crocheted edging and wants you to see them before she turns them over and Nancy Brown for the Carillon bazaar. She says that 12 of them are autographed. Now that May has finished these she has to get busy on a quilt for our show. She has the top almost put together.
A letter has just been received after Mrs. C.L. Allison 416 May St, Cadillac, Mich. It is a long time since she has written to us and it certainly seemed like old times to hear from her. She says that the only member she has heard from is Mrs. A Brown of Lake George. Mrs. Allison went over and spent the weekend with Mrs. Bowen this spring. They exchanged quilt patches and made plans for coming to the next quilt show together.

Mrs. Allison has quilted three quilts and made several tops and has also finished her Friendship Album quilt and says it is very pretty. She has finished 10 blocks of another Dresden Plate, also four of the Chinese Star design, which she hopes to finish soon. She has a garden to take care of and in one corner of the yard she is planning to have a Friendship Garden, so she certainly keeps busy.
