An amazing quilt full of LOVE! Made in 1858 for Sister Esther McAllister, a Sunday School teacher in New York City. She was one of the founders of the Methodist Episcopal Sunday School program and her husband was the Reverend at the time of the Willet Street ME Church.
The quilt is full of love as shown by the heart motifs (both visible and hidden) and the loving sentiments written in the quilt blocks.
