Antique Crewel Quilt 1840 New England Quilt Museum

As part of my continuing education as  quilt appraiser and quilt history lecture, I attend visit antique quilt museums and quilt history seminars. Here is another treasure from my antique quilt travels. 1840s crewel work embroidered wool quilt from the New England Quilt Museum

Part of the "Gilding the Lily" exhibit.  Here's the full quilt (cut out corners -an early New England quilt clue).
