Dated 1864 Civil War Antique Quilt Potholder Quilt

Another amazing treasure from the New England Quilt Museum, a potholder quilt made for a Union soldier by ladies from Boston, Massachusetts. *Potholder is a method of quilt construction where each block is an individual mini quilt that is batted, backed, quilted and then bound. The mini quilts are then joined to create a large quilt.

Wonderful inking, drawing on this block made to comfort a Union soldier in the South.


  1. I've never seen a potholder quilt I didn't like!

  2. So interesting. Don't think I have ever seen a potholder quilt 'in the flesh'. Would love to see how they are sewn together.
