Inspired by a quilt seen in the Beamish Museum of Durham UK with the inscription:
“J A BLENKINSOP born on the 2 of June in the year 1839 a.d.”

My interpretation consists of 4 appliquéd panels each surrounded by a hexagon frame
and the addition of a small border around the 4 blocks.
The appliqué is “organic”. That is to say, it is simple, with no sewing lines marked
on the fabrics which adds to the naïve look.
