Close up detail of applique

Close detail shows the fine work of the Chinese women who appliqued these quilt tops, as part of the former Church of the Brethren mission program in China. A report on the program, written in 1934 or '35, said that, "The industrial needlework in Ping Ting is making it possible for more then [sic] 60 women to provide food for more than 200 mouths. All these women are given class work in reading, hygiene, maternity welfare, and Gospel teaching."
