Pineapple Quilt

Background

00/00/0000 - This quilt was made by my grandmother, Victoria Gagnon St. Germain Daigle, in Wallagrass a small town in northern Maine. The quilt has one square where the fabric does not match because she ran out of the white she was working with in making the quilt. The legend of quilts states that a different piece of fabric is added to the quilt in recognition that the creating spirit is the only perfection that exists. My mother was going to repair this square, but she never did and I do not wish to change the quilt at all. I write about these quilts in my book, Wednesday's Child, that I see as a word quilt in recognition of all the women's lives who make life whole from many pieces..
