Stories

CustomsF131
Martha saw Dorothy Bettis's quilts at the fair. Talking to her hairdresser about them and her interest in quilting, he said he did Dorothy's hair and they should meet. They did and then went to Mill Valley, Ca. to a quilt show. Louise Smith went with them. Louise visited family, Dorothy and Martha visited San Francisco. They went by plane. Not long after that they started Pioneer Quilters. Martha makes lots of small Dresden plate blocks.
