This Stunning, original pattern quilt has the maker's name, Lucy Ann Wright appliqued in large letters in the center. Clearly, she was proud of her work. Below her name, written in ink, are the names of her daughter and great granddaughter who were later gifted the quilt. In addition to the quilt, there is a woven coverlet with Lucy Ann's name woven in it and a family portrait. Lucy Ann was born in Fishkill, New York (1822-1907). She married Joel S. Winana in 1850 and moved to his home town of Stanford, NY. They had 3 children. Family details are available. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in pristine condition.
