An appliqued red and green wedding quilted bedcover made by Lydia Hardiman for her daughter Lucy Hardiman Roundtree. Four (4) repeating blocks depicting stylized pineapple fruits in red striped and solid green cotton on a white ground are separated by green sashing with red squares in the corners. The sashing also appears on two exterior edges of the top. The pineapple design consists of a leafy stem with three (3) large fruits extending from the stem. The blocks are not oriented in the same direction. The blocks are hand appliqued and hand pieced with white cotton thread. There is cotton batting between the top and the plain white cotton backing. The layers are hand quilted with white cotton thread that traces the appliqued fruit pattern and is sewn in a diagonally-oriented grid in the negative spaces. The edges of the quilt are turned and hand stitched to the back.
A quilt made in memory of Lt. James McCullin. The majority of the quilt's background is a tan fabric with a dotted blue floral design. The border of the quilt is navy blue fabric with a dotted tan floral design. In the center of the quilt is a printed photograph of James McCullin dressed as a World War II pilot. Around the portrait are triangular pieces of the blue fabric forming a sunburst pattern. Around the edges of the quilt are pieces of fabric with images and text printed on them. Many of these pieces are McCullin's personal documents such as his diploma, Army certification, and correspondence with the War Department concerning his disappearance in 1943. The images include the plane he flew, his grave, and the building named after him at Kentucky State University.
