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.
