Eva Black Palmer and quilts

Click on the photo for the enlarged version.

"Eva Black Palmer was the daughter of William Morley Black. She married James William Palmer, and they had ten children. They were pioneers coming out of Old Mexico to San Juan County. Eva was a hard working woman. She kept things very clean, and nothing was thrown away. Every scrap of cloth was made into quilts for her big family. Quilting day was a wonderful social time for the women to visit and help one another finish a quilt for a wedding or other event."
