A Pennsylvania Family's Quilts in Photographs

This page will eventually illustrate a group of 21 photographs depicting quilts that Cora Arabelle Eckles Dinsmore (1904-1983), her mother, Mary Anna McConahy Eckles (1874-1952), both of Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, and other family members made and photographed, many of them identified with the names of the various quilts.

Five of their quilts are in the International Quilt Study Center & Museum collection, University of Nebraska, Lincoln (http://www.quiltstudy.org/collections/search.html).  Search for the name Eckles, then search for Dinsmore.

The photographs were purchased from a Des Moines, Iowa, dealer in 2011 who had bought the photo album from a Pennsylvania dealer.
