Greetings From Arizona, A to Z
by Ann Novak
Chino Valley, AZ
When Ann was a teenager in the 1950's,
her family took a road trip
following Route 66 through Arizona.
"I collected postcards along the way
and my favorite cards featured
balloon letters filled with photo scenes."
When it came time for Ann to show her love of Arizona
through a Centennial Quilt
she chose to combined personal photo's
in a picture card format.
Have you collected postcards like these on trips?
I think it's interesting that the
balloon letter format
can still be found today
on State postcards.
Nice job Ann!
Viewing your quilt really took me on a trip down Memory Lane.
