My mini this month, is reminiscent of one of the many summer jobs I had in my youth. Our neighbor, Howie Davison was a well seasoned square dance “caller” who owned and operated the historic, “Merry Barn” in Edgecomb, Maine. He held square dances every Saturday night from June through September.
I didn’t have enough fabric to cut another piece so I simply appliqued a semicircle over the boot. Hardly noticeable after quilting!
The backing is also a vintage feedsack.
Obviously square dancing was a popular theme for early 20th century fabric manufacturers. I’ve named it, “Swing Your Partner” as that was my favorite “call” in square dancing.
