Day 15 (46) Lovely Signature Quilt

Pennsylvania signature album quilt dated 1879 from Tuscarora, Bradford Co., PA. Some of the family names are Hall, Montgomery, Chamberlain, Lake and Wood. The quilt was washed and so many of the signatures are faint and hard to read while others only have first names.

A number of the blocks have very small buttonhole applique stitching and fine chain stitched stems. In addition to the variety of mostly floral motifs, it also has a variety of quilting designs.

  1. This one would be an interesting one to make some reproduction blocks from.

    1. I think I remember it is lovely. See above suggestion that you should be making repro blocks - hint, hint.
