Did you watch Michelle McKibben share her family heirloom quilt in Show 2402? The 1873 India Soldier quilt was originally given to Michelle’s great, great, great grandmother as a presentation gift by soldiers that were nursed during their years in India. We thought you might like to get a closer look, so we are sharing some close-ups of the quilt.

What a beautiful piece of history! The beading is incredible! Was it unusual for a man of that era to sew and quilt???
