j Revival of quilt-making by American women lias been given fresh impetus
• by the quilt pictured above, which was designed by Ruth E. Finley, author
of “Old Patchwork Quilts and The Women Who Made Them*', in honor of
the President. Presentation to Mrs. Roosevelt was made at the White House
by Good Housekeeping, in the January issue of which Mrs. Finley describes
the pattern. The nuilt is called “Roosevelt Rose’’.
The “Roosevelt Rose” is an appliqued quilt in an “all-over" raised
I design—a reversion to the gorgeous bas-relief patterns of Colonial America,
but made without the tedious old-time labor of “stuffing” or “padding”.
The quilt presented to the President is a riot of magnificent color. A great
! variety of brilliant calicoes were user! for the flowers of the wreath against a
background of black sateen. The qnilt is lined and corded with lip-stick red.

“Here the record stops,” accord-
ing to Mrs. Ruth E. Finley, an
authority on quilts, author of
“Old Patchwork Quilts and the
Women Who Made Them,” who
describes the Roosevelt Rose quilt
in the January Good Housekeep-
ing. “Quilts and quilt-making went
completely into the discard. Presi-
dents came and went. Two wars
were won. Change followed
change. Electric lights, the tele-
phone, the phonograph, the auto-
mobile, frlane, radio, the ‘talkie’
have all become, since the eigh-
teen-eighties, the familiars of
everyday. But where are the quilts
designed to record them? No pi
tern distinctive enough to be more
than locally known commemorates
what must for years remain the
height of romance—‘Lindbergh’s
Flight.’ No great quilt is called
‘Fourteen Points for Peace.’ ”
However, Mrs. Finley’s research
has revealed that Handwork and
handcrafts are always revived in j
times of depression. When money (
is least plentiful, creative arts
flourish, and in the darkest time
of our history, women have creat-
ed handwork of the most enduring^
With the new leisure today, wo-
men are turning again to the ol
arts; quilt-making is being revive
not only as a means of employ-
ment and as an economy measun
but out of a rekindled appreciatio]
of our oldest folk art, and tl
means of artistic expression.
