Description: 

Known among her peers for her methodical approach to quilt composition, Ruth Kennedy carefully lays out her fabric pieces, thoughtfully experimenting with pattern prior to piecing. For this quilt, she set out to make a Housetop, but after assessing the corduroy patchwork spread out before her, she settled on the blocks and strips composition.
