A New Research Avenue to Pursue
of Cheever's Football Quilt?
Above is a blow-up of the quilt on Marion's lap in the photo from the 1995 Uncoverings published by AQSG.
Here is another photo from this same source
blown-up a bit as well.

Here is a link as to how to order a copy of the 1995 Uncoverings,
if you are interested:
I was so hoping a photo would show up in Rose Lea Alboum's compilation of Marion Cheever Whiteside Newton's Story Book Quilts. Unfortunately, there is no photo of the Football Quilt though it is listed as among those that Marion designed. However, if you like Cheever's quilt designs, you will thoroughly enjoy having a copy of Alboum's spiral bound research.
However, there is a copy of a newspaper article in the Alboum book.
I have never seen a really clear photo of this particular Cheever design but the quilt I found reminded me so much of Cheever's designs, I bought it anyway …. in hopes that it is a Cheever Whiteside Newton design.
