When I saw this quilt on eBay, I thought it was reminiscent of a Jean Ray Laury design. As it turned out, it was her design. I found the original, called "Child's Quilt" in her book, Quilts and Coverlets, A Contemporary Approach".

Sadly, I never met Jean Ray Laury- but I do know a few people who knew her well. Whenever I hear people talking about her, I hang on to every word. Last year, Nancy Bavor did an outstanding podcast called "Jean Ray Laury, Threads of Feminism" to accompany the exhibit she guest curated at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska.
