Lee Quilt - "Ashland Quilt"
Sona Grigoryan, exchange student staying in 2000 with the Cernikovsky
family in New York City and Prattsville. This quilt has been the
subject of Pratt Museum lectures and has toured the Catskills area,
with lectures by Muriel Pons, former President of the Pratt Museum
have been made for thousands of years for many-many purposes – for
protection from cold and for decoration.
But you can hardly find quilts
like this one that has lasted for hundred and fifty years. It was made
in 1840’s and was property of Reverend Addi Lee.
The quilt was
inherited by Eleanor Lee Enderlin of Washington street, Prattsville.
After her death no one in her family knew where the quilt was, but
eventually her daughter Mary Enderlin of Boise, Idaho, found it. Mary and
Eleanor’s brother Hugh Lee of Bovina Center, New York gave the quilt
to the Pratt Museum.
