Velvet Tumbling Blocks Quilt Display

We currently have an antique quilt on display at the shop! It’s made out of velvet scraps from DeMoulin’s factory in Greenville, IL. It was machine pieced and hand finished in the 1930’s by a lady named Josephine “Josie” Minges, who worked at DeMoulin Bros. from 1912 to 1957. She specialized in banners and flags at the factory. This quilt sports a tumbling block design and is in great condition. Stop on by to see this wonderful piece of history! It will be on display here until the end of May.
