Our Inspiration quilt, narrow to fit a patient's bed, is signed "School of Design, Engraving Class, Cooper Union" indicating it was made by women learning to be magazine illustrators in the art school which is still thriving today.Engraving teacher Miss Field encouraged the ladies to spend each afternoon stitching bedquilts to send down to the soldiers relief agency on the school's first floor. One of only about 20 survivors of the thousands of quilts made to comfort soldiers, the sampler's fabrics provide traditional design for our Reproduction scrapbags. ~ Barbara Brackman
