This quilt is an example of Mary’s interest in making and completing quilts incorporating pieces of the past. The fabrics all date from the early 1900’s. Mary’s finished quilt won the blue ribbon for best pieced quilt from old fabrics at the 1978 Festival of Quilts Contest in Santa Rosa, California.

The Flushing Observer recognizes Mary's award for her
Dutchman's Puzzle quilt.
