Made it back from vacation to DC. We had a busy, on-the-go, week of sightseeing. I was getting sick the day before we left and snapped this photo at the American History Museum.
There was a poem in the center written so tiny that I couldn't read it.
Here is what it said about this quilt:
Quilt made by members of the Presbyterian Church, Maltaville, New York, 1847
This album quilt was presented to Mary Benton Barnard Hill, wife of the pastor of the Presbyterian Church, as a "token of esteem." Each square was made by a different seamstress, and many are signed. The Smithsonian acquired the quilt in 1931.
