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