We all know the work of Elsie Campbell is exquisite, and this quilt is no exception. Inspired by the whole cloth quilts of the Henry F. DuPont collection at Winterthur, it took Elsie eight years to complete. It's not hard to see why Elegance (80" x 80") won Best Hand Workmanship - Traditional at Quiltfest Lancaster 2019.
Scroll down after the quilt and enjoy Elsie in this Go Tell it at the Quilt Show! interview by the Quilt Alliance.
