Catalog Number PQ.1996.005.001
Object Name Quilt, Block
Description This quilt was made in 1996 by volunteers from the RMQM and the Buffalo Bill Museum to commemorate the Buffalo Bill's 150th birthday and the 75th anniversary of the museum. The original design is comprised of nine appliqued blocks (six scenes, two buffalo heads, and one commemorative seal), depicting several of the many different contributions made by Buffalo Bill during his lifetime. Each block is framed with a narrow black border, then brown sashing. A blue outer border and black binding frame the quilt. Workmanship is excellent, and the various techniques used include hand applique, hand- and machine piecing, hand embroidery, beading, painting and inking. The hand quilting (even, 8-9 stitches/inch) includes various overall patterns and original designs.
