Horse Quilt

HallKatie-HorseQuiltKatie Hall needs help locating this missing horse quilt. It was made by Eleanor Homrighausen for Katie Homrighausen. The quilt was last seen in Bennett, Iowa. She suspects it was accidentally put in a donation pile.

The quilt depicts five horses, one without a saddle. It is hand pieced and hand quilted. It was made around 2000.

Katie writes, “I’m desperate to have this priceless
piece of me back! My grandmother hand made this quilt for me when I was about 10 years old. With me being that young my mom thought it best to pack it away
to keep it safe till I was older. Then when we went to move to our new family home, about 13 years ago, this piece disappeared. We have searched and searched and have still never found it, after so long I decided it pry somehow ended up in the donation stuff. It would have ended up donated at the DAV or goodwill in Davenport, Iowa. At the time I had no way of finding it, but my mom found this picture today and I thought Facebook was worth a shot. I’m not sure if anything will come of it, but I’m not out anything except my time to follow the post.”

Rajah Medallion Quilt Top

LovejoyDebbie-RajahMedallionDebbie Leonard Lovejoy is hoping someone finds her Rajah Medallion Quilt Top which she was in the process of making. It was last seen at the Best Western in Keene, New Hampshire on December 12, 2015. The quilt top was in a colorful, eye-catching African-made workbasket which, overloaded as I was carrying various bags, was inadvertently left behind in the motel room as we departed. On this occasion, neither she or her husband did a room check. We have since contacted Best Western management multiple times, to no avail.

The design of this traditional medallion style quilt was painstakingly worked up by Marsha Molloy, a quilting teacher and friend in Western Massachusetts, based on a quilt top in the collection of the Australian National Gallery of Art made by unknown female convicts while sailing halfway around the world on board the Rajah. Their top was constructed with sewing supplies and guidance given them by a Quaker Society in England. Debbie started her quilt top in September 2010, and the restarted it is 2015. There were nine borders still remaining to be done.

This quilt top is about 42-1/2″ square. It has a muslin background with reproduction prints in browns, greens, red, blue, and gold. Debbie designed the 20″ center block, whose leafy bower in broderie perse, is composed mostly from In the Time of Toile © Shelburne Museum by
Froncie Quinn for Red Rooster Fabrics, design #15921. There are five birds along with red and blue flowers. The first border has squares on point. The second border has applique “Rajah” crosses, four per side, and a six-petalled poinsettia in each corner. The fourth border has a narrow, fine-dashed stripe in orange on black background with mitered corners.
