  • This quilt is a tribute to my Great-Grandmother, Magdalena Nissley, born in 1849. She was an avid quilter and very creative in her designs.     Many of her descendants have been fortunate enough to inherit her work, myself being one of them.           Early in my career I became fascinated with the beautiful North Carolina Lily and basically built my business around it.                                        Several years ago I acquired one of her pieces featuring the North Carolina Lily. What a rare treasure, just to realize that nearly 90 years ago she was fascinated with the same thing as I was.                         She also made many basket quilts and often on her borders she used tiny squares which I wanted to replicate, so I decided to build my baskets using the exact same size squares.  It's very important to me that her legacy lives on and her work endures.                                                                                                                                                            Soft Yellows and various shades of teal on a dark brown background gives this quilt a striking effect. Very extensive quilting was done by an Amish friend using 8-9 stitches per inch.  The back is covered with a soft-white 100% cotton fabric.    Signed and dated in embroidery.
