Copy of Museum Quilt by Donna Stickovich (SW PA.)

I've added a photo of the pattern to show the over-all design.

 I borrowed an 1830's quilt from my local museum and had a pattern made from it. There were initials but there was no record of who's it was so I call it Elizabeth's Quilt.  After tracing it onto my fabric I began to out line stitch all of the design. This top fabric is backed with voile. The stuffing is then done from the back between the voile and cotton.

I am now ready to put the layers (top batting and backing) together. And Start to quilt. I will be quilting  in a cheveron pattern at 1/4" between lines.After quilting all of the colored thread will be removed. Twice quilted , once removed!.......... Oh!! I am also a stab stitch quilter.


  1. That is going to be an amazing piece when you are finished. Please keep us posted as you quilt this.

  2. Wow! Beautiful quilt,I too would love to see as you progress on this one.

  3. I remember this gorgeous pattern Donna. I tried a practice piece of trapunto in this method but found the circles distorted and gave up, maybe too soon me thinks when I look at your beauty.

  4. You've already done a great job, way to go! I am really looking forward to seeing the next pictures.

  5. Wow, this is just amazing. Looking forward to seeing more.

  6. O my, really a work to admire. I have never tried trapunto. Are looking forward to see more photos.

  7. A beautiful project!
    Also a nice contribution to the museum, I'm sure they appreciate your efforts.
