Description
Signature Quilt by Elsie Bloomfield and Others? Even the best fieldworkers can make mistakes. The field notes for this slide read "Fan quilt with autographs. Scattergood Club 1933. This one given to Elsie Bloomfield by Iva Ruthburn. Elsie is rebinding this one." but that description clearly belongs to the quilt in slide 84. This is not a fan pattern. No field notes are associated with slide 84. It appears that there are no accurate field notes for this quilt. AR.00027: Traditional Quilt Makers in New Mexico Survey Project.
