~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Eli Leon was a legendary scholar and collector of (more than 2,500)
African American quilts.  In addition, he collected what he
called "Euro-American" quilts. 

I was able to purchase a few of those in 2017, shortly before Eli's death. 
I have had this delicate mid-nineteenth century "Rose of Sharon" appliqué in my
own collection since then. 

At least two sets of initials are hand quilted into white areas.  Marriage quilt?  Friendship quilt?
