“Bethel Green,” (Augusta County) dated 1855

This quilt is a tour de force in an individual interpretation of the Baltimore album style. Melinda Bumgardner made it for her daughter Eugenia’s fifteenth birthday. Inscribed with the names of Eugenia’s parents and siblings, it is an important family document that continues to be passed down through the family to each succeeding Eugenia.
