Sign here: Delaware Valley signature quilt

I collect and study early signature quilts, particularly those from the Delaware Valley -Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland and from 1840-1870.

(ps. I'd love to bring them to your quilt study group, shop, or quilt guild or show)

Here's a few "signature" details from and 1840's signature quilt from Delaware and PA.  Signature* because most of the blocks are not signed by hand but are inked or stamped.

 Bird stamped block and the antique bird stamp

  Detailed inked drawing.

Another bird stamp- Eagle and stars.
