Rosalie, our Program Chair, sent this article to share with you. Found in The Public Domain Review, this essay describes the history of an unusual but very lovely quilt made by Adeline Harris in the mid-1800’s when she was a young woman. The quilt is part of the collection of American quilts housed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
We hope you enjoy reading about this quilt. We think you’ll be inspired by the tenacity of Miss Harris as she embarked on this project.
