Another treasure from Mom's trunk. These snowballs and 9-patches are all hand pieced and measure 4 1/2" finished. I didn't measure the quilt top but it's big.
I call it Snowballs in the the Fields because my dad's sister, Nola married Roy Fields. Aunt Nola was married when she made this quilt, therefore a Fields. And she used to work the cotton fields too.
The quilt is in really terrific shape except for a stain or two and maybe a pulled seam but when I went to photograph the quilt I noticed writing on the back. The muslin fabric is Sugar Sacks! Dad's family is all from Texas too. I don't know the age of the quilt but it's an oldie for sure.
