: Lois K. Ide (1920-2010) made this little blue quilt along with the bed linens, mattress and pillow between 1980 and 1985 for a brass doll bed she purchased from an estate sale in Bucyrus around 1980. For the quilt, Ide used white fabric taken from a pair of old pajamas and blue print fabric purchased for a daughter's dress, which she never made. The cotton batting is from 1936. The quilt measures 57cm x 70cm (22 inches x 28 inches). She used muslin for the sheet and pillowcase and trimmed it with tatted flower lace made by her Aunt Hettie. The first two images are of the quilt, front and back and the third image is of the bed completely accessorized. Lois was a native Ohioan and resident of Bucyrus, who began sewing at the early age of four. She learned appliqué and patchwork from her mother and embroidery from her aunt. After years of mastering her craft, she became a master quilter and an internationally known teacher with students worldwide. View on Ohio Memory.
