1930's Scrappy Quilt by Estelle Wetherington Johnson- My Maternal Grandmother

My maternal grandmother, Dugette Estelle Wetherington Johnson, made this scrappy quilt top when her four girls were young.  My mother, Hazel Meliss Johnson Davis, remembered several of the print fabrics as being dresses that she wore or her sisters wore.  We lovingly called her "Madugette".

I replaced several worn pieces and replaced them with 1930' feed sack fabrics.

The top was never quilted.  She lived in Craven County, NC...the Wintergreen area and later in Cove City.
