Notes: Hannah White, daughter of the late Clarence & Bethel
submitted the quilt square application and chose this pattern based on a
real quilt, made of white and multicolored print material, she now has
on a bed in her home. There was a special reason too for choosing this
pattern. It was the one used by her mother, who always quilted. This
pattern was a pattern used on the last two quilts she made. One of those that Hannah now owns is solid
orange and white. Her sister has the other one.
The farm has been in the Baldridge family since sometime in the 1800's. Clarence, who passed away in 1994, had always lived on the farm since he was two years old in 1913. The barn was built by members of the family
about sixty years ago. It stands in front of the Baldridge Cemetery.
