Friday Show and Tell

This quilt is a "Rob Peter to Pay Paul", or a variation of Drunkard's Path. Maybe some one knows the exact name.

It was made by my Grandmother, Gracia Bergeron (1893-1976), with the help of my Aunts. It was made in the 1940's, in rural Quebec.

Picture from1928. Notice the fabric on my grandmother's and my aunt's dresses.

It is made out of sugar/flours bags and remnants of blue shirting fabric. Although from a distance there doesn't appear to be many shades of blue there are quit a few. Some of the blue fabric is also pieced within the blocks.

It is machine pieced and hand quilted.
