Antique Quilt Uneven Nine Patch

Detail of  1885 uneven 9 patch in the Starley Collection
The dark print with cheddar was 1st printed in 1881 by Hamilton Printworks so fairly easy to give the quilt an approximate date.


This uneven 9 patch or Puss in the Corner or Sheepsfold always makes me smile! The wonderful zigzag border really makes it sing as does green/pink combo and the cheddar accents.

**note for those making antique reproduction quilts**  You can never go wrong with a zigzag border . They are crowd-pleasers!

  2. For some reason the pink and green blocks really spice up this quilt and give it dimension. I almost feel as if those blocks are allowing us to look "through" the quilt. That doesn't say it very well. Anyway, love this quilt!
