It would be easiest if each quilt block had one and only one name - but it wouldn't be as much fun!
|Nina Elliott Dresden Plate|
Nina May Elliott was 25 years old in 1937 when she made her block for the Malaga quilt. She was a school teacher with a three year college degree. Nina married Merton Love in 1940. He was twenty years older than Nina and a widower with two children aged 13 and 12. The witnesses to the wedding ceremony were Nina 's parents. I wonder what they thought about Nina's choice of husband?
