Martha Blessey Gerety
Upland, California
<previous | next>

This quilt was made to commemorate the Tricentennial Celebration of my hometown, Biloxi, Mississippi:1699-1999.

It was made to honor the Blessey-Diaz families who have been residents for 150+ years. It is machine and hand pieced , appliquéd and quilted (both techniques). It is being raffled as a fundraiser for the Biloxi Seafood History Museum.
