Marilyn Califf, the Quilt Lady

Subject

Picture of Marilyn Califf

Description

This is a picture of Marilyn Califf, owner of ‘Contemporary Quilts, Home of the Quilt Lady’ in Memphis, TN. I believe this picture was taken at her business. Califf became interested in quilt making when her mother-in-law passed down a quilt that had been in her family. Marilyn Califf then became interested in how quilts were made and then different patterns used.
