Gasperik: Detroit News "Quilt Club Corner," Edith Crumb, Editor

Mary Gasperik first learned of the Detroit News quilt contest from an advertisement in a newspaper she picked up at a 1935 Chicago Cubs/Detroit Tigers World Series baseball game. She began submitting quilts to that contest, which opened up a friendship with Edith Crumb, a new community of quiltmakers, and a new audience of readers for her quilts. These quilts were published or mentioned in Crumb's column. Four Gasperik quilts and one appliqué block were made using patterns published by The Detroit News.
