Bridal Bouquet Quilt Pattern
Mary Gasperik Legacy Project; Susan Salser; Detroit News Quilt History Project

For this quilt made in 1956 for grand-daughter Karen's wedding, Gasperik transformed a 1930s Detroit News quilting pattern of calla lilies into an applique motif she used on all the wedding quilts she made (see #'s 012, 013, 074, and 068). The 16 applique bouquets are from The Detroit News Bridal Bouquet Quilt Pattern Block Design 1761-ID50, creatively rearranged by Gasperik.
