Broderie-perse gradually gave way to appliqué. The below wall hanging is appliqué with embroidery. In 1840 the embroidery was done with a heavy thread and we would tend to call it crewel work. I am trying to place to pictures so that you will get the idea of the continuous piece. I have cropped the pictures but have not succeeded in getting them all to scale. Turn your head or laptop sideways!
I trust that you have enjoyed seeing Charleston from the view of a women in the 1800s. The story is that the family at one time divided the work so that each sibling could have a part of it. Later it was wisely put back together and donated it to the Charleston Museum for all to enjoy the work on an ancestor.
