Anna's Quilt
A goosebump moment of discovering her Aunt Anna's quilt in a book led Donna di Natale on a hut for the quilt's origin. And the enduring freshness of the 1930s quilt design led her to recreating the quilt using modern techniques and materials. The templates for the quilt are based on the original design. Other projects include a wool applique wall hanging, and a small table topper. Every project contains the rose applique found in Anna's original quilt to demonstrate the timelessness of the design.
