Elizabeth Jefferson'd Coverlet
This quilt was reproduced from a tiny B/W phoot in Averil Colby's book "Quilts". The original was made in 1811 by the ten year old Elizabeth. I have traced the original to the Manchester Art Galleries, but unfortunately, no image or information is available.
This is a large undertaking, involving lots of hand applique, machine and Foundation piecing, but it gives a truly stunning result!
It is also available as a Pattern-of-the-Month (10 months) from
