Bicentennial quilt, cottons, Rebecca Thompson, Boaz, Kentuck, 66" x 94"
This outstanding hand painted Bicentennial quilt just arrived on my doorstep, and it has quite a story. The seller, also the maker, Rebecca Thompson of Boaz, Kentucky painted the blocks with Artex paints and completed the top in 1976. Forty years later, she unearthed the top from a suitcase under her bed and finished it with hand quilting. Here are photos of some of the blocks.
