Rochester Woman’s Christian Temperance Union Quilt
Rochester, New York
Signature Quilt Project
Description: The red and white pieced quilt with fan blocks with an American Flag in the center. The border is pieced with the blades of the fans. Outline stitched in each of the blocks are what appear to be a series of 1900 store names and Rochester businesses along with dozens of names of people. This was done mainly with blue thread with a few highlights in red.
