Description
Fan Quilt by the Scattergood Club (1933). Even the best fieldworkers can make mistakes. This is clearly the Fan Quilt (1933) by the Scattergood Club, but the field notes from 1985 give that description to slide 79, another signature quilt. There are no field notes for slide 84. Field notes for slide 79 read "Fan quilt with autographs. Scattergood Club 1933. This one given to Elsie Bloomfield by Iva Ruthburn. Elsie is rebinding this one."
