“It must be ‘early to bed and early to rise’ for the child who would see the sweet morning glory in all its loveliness, as it must be found before all the dew is gone. Then, too, this delicate flower always curls up and goes to sleep before sunset.” (Marie Daugherty Webster in Ladies Home Journal, August 1912.) This quilt is signed and dated “For Ladies Home Journal", 1912. Marie D. Webster

Mrs. Gerrish Thurber, Indianapolis; given to Indianapolis Museum of Art (1979).
