The Criswell Quilt was made in 1852 for the marriage of Alice McClellan Criswell and Jesse Jackson Smith in Chester County, Pennsylvania. More than sixty family members and friends each made an applique block for the quilt. Every block has a name and location. Follow this blog to make your own reproduction applique quilt.

A Day at The Barn
After yesterday's storms, wind and rain it was fantastic to have perfect weather to visit Quilts in the Barn at Wonga Park. The theme this year was "All About Chintz".
The quilts, old and new, were remarkable.
It was a great opportunity to rendezvous with friends....
