It's so gratifying to find a quilt with a known maker.  I did not know Mrs. Williams, but I think I would have liked her.  I purchased this from her son, who still lived in Opp, Alabama.  He described his Mom as a vibrant, happy woman, who loved making quilts.

I find it amusing that this quilt was made in a town called "Opp" ... since the quilt is one I'd not hesitate to call "optical."

All cottons.  Hand quilted.
