For as long as I can remember
by DARBY BAILEY

This quilt has been in my family for years. I remember it as a child way back in the 1960's. Unfortunately, I don't know much else about it though...
I just keep it safely folded away. I remember when it used to hang on the clothes line in the back yard. All I know is that my family history goes way back to Greenville, Mississippi; Brownsville, Tennessee, and Georgia.

There are many online sites with information about the heritage of quilting in America. Some are excellent, containing well-researched scholarly information, such as The International Quilt Study and Museum at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln.
Others, such as Block Central's Quilt Directory contain links to many fine sites that pertain not only to the history of quilts, but to other elements of quilting as well.
