The Bible Scenes quilt was made by a member of the Drake Family around 1900.  It is 71" x 76" and is in the Collection of the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia.  The two scenes depicted are "Adam and Eve," and "The Crucifixion."  Some of the symbolism in the quilt is not clear.  The quilt is made of cotton, hand appliqued, pieced, and quilted with feed sacks on the back.  It is difficult to know who made the quilt as census records for African-Americans in the South were not officially recorded at the time. 

If you are missing pieces, move the menu on the upper left.  Also, move the entire almost completed puzzle to see if pieces are underneath. Let us know if this solves it for you.

I would love to know the story the quilt maker was telling with this piece. It is very moving.
