MAKER: Lisetta Vogler Fries made this quilt for her daughter Mary Fries (Patterson) who married Rufus Patterson. Mary Fries was the great aunt of Mrs. Davis.
A second quilt was made for Emma Fries (Mrs. H.T. Bahnson-grandmother of Mrs. Davis).
Our quilt probably came from Chapel Hill, the home of Mary Fries Patterson’s son, Drew Patterson.
There is also a third quilt like ours currently owned by Mrs. Davis. (Above information came from Mrs. Archie K. Davis).

DESCRIPTION: Piecework; album type with quotations. Quotes in each block from Bible, Shakespeare, etc. Multi-colored, predominantly brown. Lining dark brown mingled.
