1840s and 1850s Signature Quilts are the true stars of my collection. I find them quite intriguing and it is very interesting to investigate the names/signatures and try to find out where they were made and WHY. Turkey Reds were the most commonly used fabric color for signature quilts and is seen in solids and prints and often paired with red or just with white. T. reds are also seen with multi colors.
1850s Pennsylvania/Delaware signature quilt. Investigation pending... stay tuned.
Unusual Turkey Red print with a lot of different colors in a single busy print.
