Quilt for a Daughter
Carl Klewicke, who lived from 1835-1913 in Corning, New York, finished this pieced silk quilt for his adopted daughter around 1907. It took him years to make, and was a wedding present for his daughter. I came across this at the Folk Art Museum in NYC this weekend. Takes my breath away.
