This quilt is made of repeating blocks of Norwegian flags that are made with machine piecing and applique techniques. It is hand-quilted and has a light blue cotton backing, and a thick cotton batting.
This version of the Norwegian flag was introduced in the late 1890s. It is likely that the quilt dates from independence in 1905, or perhaps the Norse-American Centennial in 1925.
Before coming to Vesterheim the quilt was exhibited at the Nassau County (New York) Museum in Quilts: A Voice in Silence, on women’s political statements.
