This quilt is a third generation design. In 1871 Elizabeth Mathews Baxter created a beautiful and original wedding quilt for her son and his wife. Mary Ann Keathley was entranced by a photograph of this antique quilt and in 1989 created “Hidden Circles” based on that original quilt. Mary’s quilt can be found in the Leisure Arts Book, Encyclopedia of Classic Quilt Patterns, published by Oxmoor House. Janice removed several of the curves and adapted the pattern to foundation paper piecing. Quilting by Ann Hull.
