If you are ever near the Philadelphia area - make a beeline for the Chester County Historical Society!!
They have amazing antique treasures, particularly quilts. Last summer I was blessed to visit CCHS with my fellow certified quilt appraisers from PAAQT aka the Professional Association of Appraisers Quilted Textiles. We visited as part of our continuing education training.
Among the amazing quilts we saw at CCHS was the famed Oxford Seminary Quilt from the 1840s. Enjoy a few photos. Let me know if you'd like to see more of this one and some others?
