Edgar Allan Poe's Childhood Quilt

A surreptitiously snapped picture of Edgar Allan Poe's childhood quilt shown at the Poe Museum in Richmond, VA. I don't remember the exact date of the quilt, but he was born in 1809 so I'd guess 1810-1820.


I wish I'd been able to get a better shot of it, with more detail, but I was unable to get closer, I only had my phone's camera, and we weren't supposed to be taking pictures at all (Shh!). It was still an elaborate and beautiful piece of quilting, which is why I was naughty and took a picture anyway.
