dc.description.abstract This is a pamphlet describing The Heritage Quilt. The quilt, which was completed in 1984, was designed by Joanne Johnson in a variation of the Baltimore Album quilt style and was aplliquéd and quilted more than 30 Northern Virginia Women. Frances Griffith was the master quilter. The 10-foot-by-12-foot quilt contains 35 15-inch squares, each crafted with 36 quilting stitches per square inch. Quatrefoils separate the images, and a traditional swag-and-tassel border surrounds the entire design. Quilt is installed at the Center for the Arts Concert Hall. The front cover of this pamphlet contains a typo. In the first paragraph, which lists the quilters who took part in this project, Carolyn Peterson is identified incorrectly as "Marilyn Peterson".
