One of my all-time best purchases was a simple 9 Patch that I found on ebay listed as an 1890s quilt top. I was brand new to quilt history/quilt collecting and it looked interesting and was inexpensive so I purchased it. Imagine my surprise when it arrived and I began to compare the fabrics to my handy Trestain's Fabric Dating book. I started in the section for 1890s and ended up in the front of the book in the 1830s!!
1830s fabrics just captivated me then and still do today. Enjoy
