Quilt notes and observations

FeaturesF053
Rated 5 (outstanding) on HQPNJ's scale for visual effect. Signed blocks of original design have been made into a presentation quilt: a New Jersey version of the Baltimore Album quilt. Each block is a masterpiece of design and workmanship featuring applique, reverse applique and piping around each block. Many of the colors, including the electric blue, are startlingly bright, particularly in contrast to the faded green in some of the corner blocks.
