The vortex quilt.... not a title for this quilt, just a description of the block designs. The center of each block is a monogram on a light patch, and the successive patches then appear to swirl around the center. There is a date embroidered also, of December 25, and it is dated to 1900.

It has some really lovely and varied stitches. Considering it was a group project, the stitching is all of a similar expertise.

Thanks for the close ups of the stitches. I'm going to try some of them.
