Stacy Hollander, museum curator of the American Folk Art Museum, tells the amazing story of this silk quilt featuring over 31,000 pieces. The story features a child left on a doorstep and a fashion-forward tailor in the early 1900s.

Stacy shared this story at Quilters Take Manhattan 2014.

What a beautiful redemption of a girl child, and scraps of fabric carefully placed. Wonderful.
