Caesar's Crown signature quilt made for Elizabeth Bickel/Bechtel from Berks Co/Montgomery Co. Pennsylvania (near Philadelphia). Dated 1851.This is a difficult pattern which is probably why I'm collecting antique versions rather than making one of my own. Starley Antique Quilt Collection.
Such beautiful quilting expecially for a signature quilt which generally have very basic quilting as they are "all about the signatures/names".
It was made for Elizabeth Bickel or Bechtel (seems to depend on the neighborhood and how English or German it was). The blocks were "signed" written by a paid professional scrivener or writer. This is the dedication or ownership block.
