DescriptionThe quilter is Annie R. (Little) Mangumn (1900-1989). She was the great aunt of the owner of the quilt, Lillie Edwards. Having worked in domestic service all of her life in Columbus, GA, and then in Ohio, Aunt Annie returned to Georgia to help care for her parents circa 1950. Her quilts were made from household fabrics, usually discarded clothes and other household items. All off her quilts were hand pieced, as is this one. The rim on the quilt's edge is machine stitched. Although some of Aunt Annie's quilts contained batting, most of them did not since the warm Georgia weather did not require that quilts provide the additional warmth of the batting. This quilt was used as bedding.
