New England Quilt Museum’s new acquisition was believed to have been made soon after the pattern was published. Instead of red and white, it is made in blue, yellow and white. “Lone Eagle” is hand quilted into the top and bottom border of the quilt and the plain blue alternate blocks have eagles quilted in them. Our Lone Eagle Quilt (2012.17) was part of a donation of 21 quilts by Richard and Susan Doll of Rhode Island.
