Hi, I'm a grandmother of 8 from southwest louisiana. I have a 1904 quilt made by my great-great grandmother and I have never seen another or heard of one like it. It's made from the bark of a Palmetto tree. Each section is hand stitched together and embroidered. The fibers from the bark are still intact. It was supposed to have been displayed in the 1904 world's fair in Missouri. My great-great grandmother has a card stitched to the quilt with all of the information requarding this quilt. I would love to hear from anyone who has ever seen or has someting like this.
