More from the International Quilt Study Center and Museum.....

Since the American Revolution, when men marched off to war women mobilized at home.  They rationed money for relief,  and they existed on limited resources.  I can not read the remaining portion, but in other words.......women are awesome!


I zoomed in on this portion for a better read.


Isn't this a marvelous quilt?

Some of the blocks are autographed.




All of these quilts were thrilling to see and they caused me to be reflective an d extremely pleased that I am a woman and a quilter.





Label your quilts to record history.  We all have a story to tell.


I hope you are enjoying the quilts as much as I did.......more tomorrow.

  1. That first quilt looks very much like a 'potholder' quilt where each block is made, bound and quilted separately before hand stitched together. They are New England in origin apparently. I have an example and love it!

  2. Thank you for sharing the photos of the quilts.
