Other Notes: Kathleen McCrady, an award winning quilter and quilt historian, added the borders with swags and ties and quilted the top to finish the quilt., The Sunday Friends was a group of the Austin Stitchery Guild whose members were primarily interested in quiltmaking. The members were very supportive of one another, helping each other, sharing ideas, patterns, and fabrics. the group probably made about 15 quilt tops and quilted another 15 quilts during its existence from 1978 to 1984. The group's members won many prizes for their individual works.
