A tidbit of history, especially for research of friendship quilts. This is a block made for Meuncie, March 10, 1896. Signed by 20 of her friends and family, although not completed. 

Embroidered in turkey red floss, there are seven names which haven't been embroidered.  The quilt pattern, which is penciled, looks to be a Dresden Plate.  The embroidery is worked on a linen square.

The history and details are scant.  Other than the names on the block, it was found in rural farm country in northwestern Ohio. 

Size of the block:  9-1/4" square.

Condition:  Some age spots and soiling from years of storage.
