Thousands of museum visitors have viewed the Bible-themed quilts stitched by Harriet Powers (1837 - 1910) at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of American History and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
In 1882, Mrs. Powers completed her "Lord's Supper Quilt," a piece seemingly lost to history. What became of this quilt? Is it in a family's private possession? Quilter Kyra E. Hicks has imagined what Bible stories Mrs. Powers might have told through fabrics to create the "Lord's Supper Quilt." Included here are 12 blocks featuring stories from both the Old and New Testaments.
This pattern can be enlarged to make either a wall hanging or bed quilt.
