Portrait of Kansas dressmaker and quilter Carrie Alma Hackett Patterson Hall, 1866-1955, co-author with Rose Good Kretsinger of 1935's "The Romance of the Patchwork Quilt in America." Working from 1920 to 1935, Hall identified and made cloth blocks of over 850 unique quilt block patterns in order to preserve a record of historical quilt patterns. Hall's patterns and cloth blocks are in the Carrie Hall collection at the Helen Foresman Spencer Museum of Art in Lawrence, Kansas, and are featured in Bettina Havig's 1999 book "Carrie Hall Blocks: Over 800 Historical Patterns from the Collection of the Spencer Museum of Art, University of Kansas."
