This colorful checkerboard quilt, with salmon edging, was the first one created by Shirley Jo Ann (Heinbaugh) Colbert, the great-granddaughter of Missouri (Younkin) Wingerd of Rockwood, PA. It was made in 1997 for her daughter Sue Ellen (Colbert) Martin, and she made only two more quilts before her passing in 2000.
Sue graciously brought it to be shown and photographed at the 2005 National Minerd-Minard-Miner-Minor Reunion.
