Carolyn has spent 18 years researching, interviewing, tracking quilts and relatives, writing and editing this book. Those 18 years were certainly worth the wait. The best of luck came her way just a few months ago when she was able to find one of Goldie's last quilts to add to the book.
During Carolyn's presentation of the book Saturday, anyone listening to Carolyn talk about Goldie knew immediately of Carolyn's love and respect for her subject. As we heard about Goldie as an early 20th century pioneer on the Arizona desert, Carolyn conveyed Goldie's strength of character and strong survival skills, leaving the listener with a new heroine and a respect for Goldie's legacy.
Another note of interest is that with the publishing of this book, several members of Goldie's extended family were able to attend the presentation yesterday, some meeting each other for the first time. I'm sure Goldie was smiling!
Here are a few detail photos of the Baltimore Album quilt.
