Biographical Note

Fannie Elmira Reeder Rudolph lived and worked on a farm near Fort Collins, Colorado. Quilt-making was an important part of her family life, and was passed along to other family members including daughter Mary Ragland. Ms. Rudolph practiced scrap quilting, using only fabric scraps in her work rather than purchasing fabric.


Scope and Contents

Mary Ragland captures the quilt-making history of her mother and other family members in the book Grandma's Quilts: Quilts Made or Collected by Fannie Elmira Reeder Rudolph, 1895-1991, and Descendants. The book includes color photographs of many of the quilts, as well as detailed descriptions of each quilt's history, style, materials, and techniques.
