Alex and Wendy Grande (Show 813 - Enhance Your Appliqué Repertoire... with Ribbon!) visited the National Museum of American History in Washington DC. It is part of the Smithsonian Museums. They searched and found only one quilt on display. It's a wonderful quilt made in 1847 and even has a picture of Saturn on it. Take a look at all of the interesting block designs.
