1976.004.1 - Quilt

Bicentennial Quilt, 1976. Compiled by Eleanor D'Olivo, Rhode Island Arts and Crafts Chairman, from squares submitted by the states. This quilt is an embroidered variation of the "album quilt," which had its roots in Baltimore, Maryland in the mid-19th century. Although traditionally appliquéd, album quilts were generally created as special gifts, with various quilters providing the scenes that would tell a story or complete a sentiment. GFWC's Bicentennial Quilt not only celebrates an important moment in American history, but also echoes GFWC's long record of service supporting American culture, traditions, and historic landmarks.
