May 16: Lancaster Diamond Sampler with Ann Holte

The Lancaster Diamond Sampler is one of a small group of similar quilts that were made in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in the mid-1800s by a group of quilters who referred to themselves as the “girl cousins.” They were friends and family, old and young, new quilters and experienced quilters, who got together to visit, to eat, to share knowledge, fabric, and patterns, and to work on quilts.
