Detail from the Kentucky Coffin Quilt, or Graveyard Quilt, by Elizabeth Mitchell in the mid 1800s. This shows the center of the quilt, designed and embroidered to depict a graveyard. Coffins with names on paper attached are appliqued into the cemetery. Coffins with blank paper are basted on outer border, possibly waiting to be moved into the graveyard when someone else she cared about died. A graphic example of mourning art.
