In it's heyday this quilt would have been absolutely spectacular. And probably totally unaffordable.

This truly a quilt that honors the skill, creativity, and perseverance of our foremothers. This was made by a master quilter. Except for a few blocks, the piecing is exquisite. It is quilted every half inch, all over!

The colors are now mostly faded with time. Many of the blocks have frayed remnants where the the fabric has deteriorated and disappeared, probably from the degradation of the dyes.

This is a piece of quilt history you can hold in your hands. Even in its current state, it is a treasure.

This quilt earned $75 for the AAQI.
