    1. Anne Olsen bought the antique quilt top and did the hand quilting in 2003. The completed quilt was then donated to the museum. She's a wonderful supporter of RMQM.

  4. The workmanship is so elegant and precise. I wonder if these women who made these quilts realized their artistic talents and abilities.

  10. I'm just blown away again by these jaw dropping quilts! That reverse applique is gorgeous - imagine having the patience for that! I love the quilting in the broken branch quilt - the border treatment I will have to study further. You take such wonderful close pictures to enjoy the fabrics and the stitching - thanks so very much!

  12. Thank you for sharing these! In Australia antique quilts are rarely on show so I really appreciate it when bloggers share their visits to the wonderful Museums across the pond! There are some real beauties!
