This quilt was inspired by another String Plate quilt in the collection of the Michigan State University Museum.

The project for the String Plate Quilt was made in a palette similar to Ethel Adair's original piece. The plates were pieced from the many reproductions of fabrics from the 1930s and 1940s which are available on today's market. Brights or batiks against a black background fabric would be an interesting alternative for piecing the quilt.

The pattern for this reproduction can be found in Great Lakes, Great Quilts.
