Resilience, c. 1900

I gave this quilt the moniker “resilience” a year ago when I posted it on Facebook. It seemed fitting for the times. And it still does today.

A quilt inside a quilt is always a fascinating find, and in this case a fair amount has been exposed. I believe someone started cutting away the top and then thought better of it. This is how it came to me. Many, many years in the making, this quilt has had two lives in use, and now a third on display.
