This antique quilt block is poorly wrought - not an example of a masterpiece - so I was anxious to get it home and see if I could find out more about it.
I carefully sliced the paper off the back of the frame and...nothing!
UGH! Obviously framed by an archivist: the block was tacked to linen with careful cross stitches, double matted to allow space between the fabric and the glass, custom frame (though now dinged up).
(see the little red cross stitches on the red solid, and white cross stitches on the muslin?)
I don't recognize the block - anyone know the name? It reminds me of a Maple Leaf, something very Canadian about it, eh?
