• Reconciliation Quilt 300-piece Jigsaw Puzzle

  • Lucinda Ward Honstain (American, 1820–1904) pieced and sewed this quilt of forty blocks depicting scenes of domestic life and public events in the 1860s. The central three-panel appliqué represents her farm in Brooklyn, New York. Two other blocks celebrate what Honstain viewed as significant reconciliatory events in postbellum America: the freeing of former Confederate president Jefferson Davis and the granting of suffrage to freed slaves. The Reconciliation Quilt is now in the collection of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum at Quilt House in Lincoln, Nebraska, whose mission is to inspire an understanding of the cultural and artistic significance of quilts and quilt-making traditions from many cultures, countries, and times. It is the largest publicly held quilt collection in the world.
