Antique Double Nine Patch - Starley Quilt Collection

Love this cheddar polka dot paired with a red mini dot fabric  on my early double 9 patch circa 1840

And this Prussian blue floral is quite charming...

But the best part of the whole quilt is this amazing monochrome pillar print backing, yards of it on this full sized antique quilt! It would have been imported from England and quite pricey. This pillar print was produced in at least 15 different colorways.


  1. How common were polka dots in the 1840 era fabrics?
    Love that pillar print backing!

  2. Wow! What I wouldn't give to have yardage of all 15 colorways of that pillar print. :)
