Fern Miller, Marian Pedersen and Vivian Hansen are pictured working on the Amish pattern quilt known as "Sunshine and Shadows". The Miller, Hansen and Eleanor Erickson are helping Mrs. Pedersen complete the quilt. The ladies regularly meet to quilt. By Nancy Fintei Marian Pedersen, Vivian Hansen, Fern Miller and Eleanor Erickson enjoy quilting together at the Pedersen home in Hardy. Pedersen has room in her base- ment where the quilting frame can be set up and is readily accessible nearly each weekday. The ladies quilt from 1:00 to 4:00 in the alter- noon. Miller lives three miles from Hardy and the others all re- side in town. Pedersen and Miller are sis- ters-in-law but Pedersen amus- ingly said, "I claim the other two ladies also." In the nine years since they have been quilting together, they estimate they have completed about 40 quilts. They are usually able to finish about four each sum- mer. The quilts on which they work are their own creations. Each lady pieces or embroiders the quilt top at home and then furnishes her own supplies such as thread, needles and batting. They do not advertise for quilts because they do not like to feel pressured into getting a certain by her grandmother and Hansen number completed in a specified learned with her mother and sis- time limit.

Two years ago the ladies at- tended a quilt show in Aurora and three years ago enjoyed the Na- tional Quilt Show held at Pershing Auditorium. Lincoln. It was in- teresting, they said, to see the large variety of beautiful patterns and colors. Miller has a niece in Lincoln who had a quilt she had made and quilted chosen to be displayed in New York. The appliqued quilt was also featured on the front cover of"The Qui lter's Magazine." The honor that her fiiece received was special to Miller as well. coffee, especially when rhubarb is in season. Pedersen has kept a scrapbook with pictures of all the quilts they have completed. Some of the more unusual ones include a "School House" design using shades of brown finished in 1984. The scrapbook also contains pictures of the two "Texas Star" quilts made by Miller. Each has many pieces. The ladies com- mented that Hansen has a talent for designing unique patterns such as "Shooting Star" and "Pioneer Braid." Erickson treasures the "Dresden Plate" quilt she made Pedersen said she learned to using scraps from dresses her quilt as a young girl each daZ mother sewed for her as a child. when she arrived home from Pedersen set together and quilted school.
