“Waynesboro Cherry Wreath” Gone Modern

This year, Northwest Quilting Expo’s challenge is “Transitions”  We were to take an old family quilt and remake it modern ~~ any size.

My father purchased a “Waynesboro Cherry Wreath”  quilt right after Rhoda Snowberger finished it in 1968.  It was used for years in our family home in Waynesboro, PA and is now in my possession here in Oregon.

My quilt uses the Pantone color of the year:  Greenery in the leaves and the Kona color of the year:  Flamingo in the background.  The back has a snail fabric since my mother had a sizable collection of snails.

As you can figure from the article in the following book, my quilt is a copy of a very traditional quilt native to Waynesboro.  My mother learned to quilt with the Church of the Brethren women.
