 Willa Cather's earliest memory of art was sitting under quilting frames as a child. This early experience of art as craft listening to stories and looking at thoughtfully arranged materials of everyday life remained with Cather. Throughout her life, Cather chose to work in places that recalled the small space under the quilting frame, including the attic room in her Red Cloud home, the attic sewing room Isabelle McClung prepared for her in Pittsburgh, and the tent where she wrote in Grand Manaan. Slides illustrate quilts Cather names in her fiction as well as related Cather sites and materials. This program is sponsored by the Nebraska Humanities Council.
