Pictorial Quilt

Each block of this quilt showcases the diverse skills and interests of a different contributor. One features a woman’s silhouette, the initials "N. M.," a cat, a heart, a mitten, and the square and compass symbol of the Freemason fraternal organization. Though they were not allowed membership, women supported this all-male group through female auxiliaries, using their needles to raise money and awareness for Mason causes.
