There's also a humorous story about Sam Amos and a black snake with red stripes that you won't want to miss - especially if you have a husband who doesn't like to pick up his clothes! "Things has come to a fine pass in Kentucky when a sober, God-fearin' man like me has to put his necktie in the top drawer to keep from seein' snakes."
If you'd like to make the Rosebud quilt block shown above to represent this story of Aunt Jane of Kentucky, you can find the pattern here.
