Our Grandmothers' Quilts

Mae (Posey) Strader who was the great grand daughter of Alfred and Christina (Curtis) Posey1, pieced and made these quilts.

Kathy Jo Strader shares these three of her husband's grandmother's (Mae Strader) quilts: two patchwork and one, I believe, Double Wedding Ring pattern. We now have examples of the quilts of two Orlando women2.
If you have an old quilt made in Orlando, or in another central WV town, I hope you will share a photo of it with us.
