On this day in 1978, the world’s first “test tube” baby was born. Louise Joy Brown was conceived by her parents, Lesley and Peter Brown, via in vitro fertilization (IVF).  Brown’s younger sister Natalie was born four years later, becoming the world’s 40th IVF baby.

This Baby Blocks quilt is actually a wholecloth quilt made from pre-printed fabric and tied with red yarn. It was made in Connecticut by an unnamed quiltmaker between 1876-1900 and was documented in The Quilt Index as part of the Connecticut Quilt Search in 1996.
