Inspiration From Within . . .

The design of this card featured in the Fall Mailing in support of the President General’s Project was inspired by a section of a quilt housed right here in the DAR Museum. Known as a “Baltimore Album,” this beautiful quilt is 86 inches wide by 84 inches long and features 25 distinctly different panels. 

“Baltimore Album Quilts” were a form emerging in that city in the mid-1840s and popular for just a decade. They were composed of appliqué blocks of extraordinary complexity and beauty, in a variety of styles that could be purchased as kits like the squares here, or made at home. Like album quilts of different styles popular throughout America, the Baltimore versions usually were made as a group project with signatures of friends and family. The DAR Museum owns eight of these types of quilts, including the one whose block is pictured here. Sadly, this one has no names, and its history has been lost. Its only clue is the inscription “Trophy of Love 1846” inked on the back.
