Biography Charlotte Jane Whitehill
Born 1866 and died 1964, Charlotte Jane Whitehill was a quilter. She lived in Emporia, Kansas in the 1930s, and began to make quilts at the age of sixty-three as an evening diversion from her day job as a district manager for an insurance company.
She preserved many 19th-century appliqué patterns by copying family heirloom quilts as well as museum examples.
Whitehill moved to Denver around 1940 and continued to make quilts for about another five years. In 1955 she gave the Denver Art Museum twenty-eight of her quilts.
