The Vermont room, an early 19th-century parlor, features a quilt top on a quilting frame in the center of the room. Quilting, a popular leisure activity for women during the century, was labor-intensive and primarily performed by women who had time and money. While the piecing of the quilt was done at home alone, the quilting, or the sewing together of the three layers of fabric, was often performed in a social setting called a “quilting party” as shown here.
