Depression String Square Quilt
Depression era String Square Quilt from 91 year old Nita Christian’s OKC estate Nita’s mother (Flora Belle Edmonds Self (Mrs. Clarence Gordon Sel) made on farm west of Sentinel, OK. Nita graduated Salutatorian and worked as Secretary at Tinker AFB 1943-73 and then at OK Dept. of Human Services, Amerax Oil and OK Dept. of Commerce. Obit and picture included. She traveled frequently to Europe and volunteered at Nat. Cowboy Museum. Definitely a scrap bag country quilt. The cotton batting looks like it could be hand carded. Love, love, love this Quirky quilt with blue back and fun fabrics. Hand quilted in the Baptist Fan pattern @ 5-7 st/in. I bought it unbound and obviously never used. So I bound it in red. MINT Condition. 70” x 88”.
