Every stitch by
hand. Every scrap of wool and something left-over from a sewing
project...every seam embroidered and every large scrap embellished with
fanciful embroidery. This quilt was made by Annie Roberta McDonald Bishop
over 60 years ago and was photographed as a part of the 1996 Georgia
Olympic Quilt project.
Called "A Crazy Quilt," the design simply depended on the size and
shape of the scraps available.
Mrs. Bishop never wasted anything in her Scottish way. Clothing was
remade, patched, mended and finally became a part of a quilt, dolls
clothes, polishing cloths or whatever was needed. Everything was
creatively used and reused and then used again...and this is days before
"recycling" was even heard of.
