“Lenora Christine” by Lone Jacobsen of Maribo Storstrom, Denmark.

A pity the AQS doesn’t list artist statements on the quilt information cards, but I’m pretty certain this beautiful appliquéd album is based on the life and adventures of 17th century Danish countess Lenore Christina Ulfelt, the legendary prisoner of the Blue Tower (thanks, Google). Hand appliquéd and embroidered.
