Weese’s … two cousins, three blocks

DSC00203Two Weese’s are commemorated in Doris’ friendship quilt squares.

Dean Weese, two years old in 1934, has two squares in the set. One of the unsolved mysteries is why he has two squares. We’ll never know. We can’t ask his mother. Zelma Leona (Smith) Weese, a member of the Athelstan Quilt Guild, made his square. Zelma was born February 18, 1914 on a farm north of Athelstan. She lived her life in Athelstan, marrying and raising her family.

qs_Madeline WeeseMadelyn Weese, daughter of Enoch and Minnie Tucker Weese, was seven years old in 1934. Her mother, Minnie, most probably made her square also. Many seven year olds, especially in the 1930’s, learned to sew and embroider. However, with the neatness of her stitch and the creative embellishments on the square, I believe her mother, Minnie, made the square.
