The Queen of the South was the description of New Orleans in 1850…with it's international flavor, it was the center of beauty, high finance, teeming industry and a challenger to New York as the nation's greatest port. Gorgeous goods sailed into it's wharves and among those were yards and yards of exquisite textiles.

Artist Jean Anne Wright has captured the essence of this period of New Orleans history with her vivid adaptation from her unique collection of antique French quilts. Feathers and flourishes combined with the fresh color palette make this collection perfect for modern interpretation!
