Content and Structure
Scope and content
Embroidered bedspread of linen with applique. The technique, lettering and choice of inscription are typical of Jessie Newbery's work. From the wear on the stitching of the inscription it is obvious that the bedspread has been in regular use. The heart shaped applique motifs are unfaded round the edges and there is evidence that the blue silk Inscribed: "God knows and/what he knows/is well and best/ the darkness/hideth not from/him but glows/clear as the/morning or the/evening rose/of east or west".
