A Most Amazing Quilt

 In the previous post, I mentioned that the appliqué blocks we're raffling off tomorrow are from a quilt in the museum's collection made by a woman named Almira Brown.

On Thursday, our speaker (and featured quilter) Ann Pfrender showed us many quilts in the museum's collection, including that show-stopper by Almira Brown.

It's the finest example of vintage workmanship I think I've ever had the opportunity to be a few inches from.  The appliqué and trapunto are exquisite, and the quilting is a remarkable 12-14 stitches per inch, at a minimum.

I encourage you to use your computer's zoom feature to see the details.
