When Beth was here for sewing earlier this week, she brought four quilts that she acquired at an antique sale that were made by Lena Mae Cooke. Mrs. Cooke was the 2nd president of the Genesee Valley Quilt Club.
This twin-bed sized quilt and its mate have a Carolina Lily pattern with green swags. Neither of the quilts have dates.
This quilt has appliqued tulips and a blue ribbon swag. Click on the picture to see a close-up of the quilting. It has a date of 1941 on it.
Beth found a date of 1936 quilted in the corner of this scrappy basket quilt.
This is a detail picture of the basket pattern in the quilt above.
