The Bloomington Historical Society has a wonderful 1893 Album Quilt in their collection which I wrote about last year. They've asked me to put together an interactive quilting display for Heritage Days (Sept. 21st) and I need to get busy with my reproduction of the Album Quilt.
I've done a lot of research on the women whose names appear on the quilt. It was fascinating! But now I'm on to actually piecing a reproduction. The original is so fragile! I hope to get the top done by Heritage Days.
Here are the blocks I finished today. I will wait to trim the edges until I am assembling the blocks so they don't stretch.
And here is the original:
