A super graphic tied quilt with a pieced back and no batting. This was one of the newer quilts in the collection.
Information from the display:
"This quilt portrays the great seal of the united states. The central medallion, an appliqued eagle, dates anywhere from 1785-?.(too blurry from my photo) The flowered chintz used is typical of broderie purse (a style of quilting when a motif is cut from cloth and appliqued onto the quilt) It is likely the quilt was made in stages, with the last stars added when Texas became a state in 1847.
