MOUNTAIN MIST P
AddNotesF066
Owner believes this was a Mountain Mist pattern. Friends told the maker she could use a sheet for unpieced back. She used a fine percale sheet and found it almost impossible to quilt. She was so disappointed because she thought it was going to be such a nice quilt and the quilting came far below her expectations., Pg 1: Quiltmakers Education: Normal School at Salem Pg 2: Pattern ID: Borgoyne's Puzzle, Beauregard's Surroundings, Coverlet quilt, An Odd Patchwork
