This quilt was inspired by the Melrose History Quilt, an 1897 quilt that I researched. It has 220 names inked onto the blocks, and my research uncovered lots of Melrose, MA, history. I decided to make a little replica inscribed with the names of my ancestors.

Materials/techniques: cotton. machine pieced, tied. Inscribed with inked names.
Shown: Melrose History Quilt Homecoming celebration, Melrose, MA, 2018. Fine Art of Fiber, IL, 2019.
