This cotton-applique quilt of 25 blocks was made by Susan Rogers of Brooklyn, New York, and dated 1861. It celebrates the family's patriotism, military service, or membership in benevolent or fraternal organizations. The center block is decorated with a Christmas tree, gifts, and flags.
The American Quilt Legacy case features pieces from the museum's collection, rotated approximately every 6 months.
