Herbert Hoover's quote "prosperity is just around the corner," inspired this wonderful humorous quilt created by Fannie B. Shaw between 1930-1932. It is 72" x 86" and is hand appliqued, pieced, and quilted.
In her Prosperity Quilt, she has her applique figures depicting women, businessmen, baseball players, a farmer, a cowboy, and more peeking around the corner expectantly. Mrs. Shaw even included herself in her hallmark apron. She used a variation of the attic windows pattern and quilted footprints in the sashing to show movement and the search for jobs. This quilt sent a powerful message that spoke for the whole nation.
