The Washington Collection: Needlepoint Cushion

Martha Washington cross-stitched twelve worsted wool needlepoint cushions for a set of Windsor chairs at Mount Vernon. This cushion was a gift to Martha Peter, probably one of four she received prior to her grandmother's death. It is part of the collection at Tudor Place. Tudor Place was the Washington, D.C., home of Thomas and Martha Custis Peter. Martha Custis Peter was First Lady Martha Washington's granddaughter.
