GIFT SET ALBUM QUILT

On Sale!
$5.00
Originally $22.00

This gift set includes a note card, magnet, pocket notepad, and magnetic bookmark featuring an Album Quilt (1842-43) by Anna Eliza Pratt Perrine, which is in the collection of the Denver Art Museum.

To create the floral arrangements, the maker of this quilt used a technique called broderie perse (Persian embroidery), which involves cutting out flowers from glazed printed cottons, assembling them into the desired design, and carefully stitching them down. Smaller blossoms and fine details are drawn with pen and ink or embroidered, while signatures are signed, stamped, or stenciled.

Made in the USA.
