Antique signature quilt, Quaker, made for Enoch and Mary Hoopes Worrall of Bradford, Chester County, Pennsylvania in 1850. Center is a dedication block showing the ownership and then listing the couple's children. Many blocks have several names. A true genealogical record.
The full quilt in all its beauty.
Block for Mary Ann & Edith Trego (age 10 and 12). Wonder if their uncle or cousin was a whaling captain?
Block for Enoch and Mary's daughter Mary Hoopes Worrall. I'm sure it is depicting love or a cupid type activity but the hand throwing the knife into the heart is a wee bit odd.
