This undated photograph of Harriet Powers is the only confirmed one in existence. Her Bible Quilt attracted many admirers when it was displayed at an exhibition in 1895. One was Lorene Curtis Diver, who wanted to know more about its artist. She tracked down Powers and wrote to her. Powers’s response contains a list of other quilts she created: “In 1872 I made a quilt of 4 thousand and 50 diamonds ... in 1887 I represented the star quilt in the colored fair association of Athens ... I composed a quilt of the Lord’s Supper from the New Testament. 2 thousand and 500 diamonds.” The fate of these other quilts is unknown, and their whereabouts continue to tantalize art historians.
