The Circuit Rider's Quilt
This early album-style quilt pays homage to Reverend George C. Warvel of Eastern Ohio, an early circuit rider.

The original quilt, now housed at the Art Institute of Chicago, includes 42 appliqued album-style blocks, each lovingly inscribed by the maker. In this new book, quilt instructor and author Jenifer Dick shows you how to recreate this 19th Century treasure.
