Sarah Flickwir Quilt

Sarah Flickwir Quilt

I stumbled on this quilt at the website of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  It's a friendship album quilt signed by the family and friends of Sarah Flickwir.  It comes from Philadelphia and was made about 1840 - 1846.

Please take the time to visit the website and read about 19th century friendship quilts - it's quite a good summary of  signature album quilts.
