I hope you put Michelle McKibben in touch with the International Quilt Study Center & Museum. They have just had an exhibit of Soldier Quilts from that era in India, including some other beaded ones.

It would be great if you could have Annette Gero on the show, her books and quilts are amazing to see. History over hundreds of years preserved as quilts.

OMG! The block in the upper right hand corner is known as a 'cretan labyrinth' or 'troy town'. They are found cut into turf mazes or inlaid (frequently into church floors) and are symbolic of a journey.

In the U.K. what you call flannelette is known as brushed cotton. Thanks for another great show.
