Art in the Stacks: “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” Nursery Quilt

As part of the Stockton Springs Community Library’s “Art in the Stacks” this charming Peter Rabbit hand embroidered quilt will be on display in the Reading Room of the library from September 8 through October 3. The quilt is available to the highest bidder by silent auction. All proceeds benefit the Library Endowment Fund, which has been managed by Maine Community Foundation since 2013.

Inspired by the Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit stories and hand made by one of our long-time library volunteers, Edna aka “E.J.” Pikulski, the “Tale of Peter Rabbit” is told through 6 embroidered vignettes sure to charm any child. The quilt is perfect for displaying on a crib or nursery wall and for reading aloud to a child.
