Lucinda Ward Honstain (American, 1820–1904) Reconciliation Quilt, 1867 Lucinda Ward Honstain pieced and sewed this quilt of 40 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. Take a walk through history with this folk art quilt, as you fit together the 300 pieces of this puzzle.
This is one of the most enjoyable beautiful puzzles I've done. The quilt itself is a marvel and the story behind it wonderful. The different fabric patterns made it interesting to solve as a puzzle. I thought the outlined squares would make it easier but actually made it harder. I found solving it a good challenge.
This puzzle, only 300 pieces, was still wonderful. To realize this is an actual quilt, made in the 1860's, is remarkable. Might drive to Nebraska to see it.
Fun to do, but medium-hard. Only picture is on the cover. Medium size pieces that stay together, but tear down beautifully. Enjoy.

Was so fun to work with my Mother. Only took about 3 hours total.
Educational (American history) and good for a group to build because it has so many distinct parts.
