Another treasure from my Textile Time Travels to the New England Quilt Museum is this 200 year old Chintz hexagon masterpiece. Be sure to click on pictures to enlarge and savor these beautiful fabrics. And to see other amazing chintz and early quilts, join me in Kansas in June ...
Provenance on the front of the piece noting that it was started in 1816 and finished in 1817
Wonderful fussy cutting in the hexagons and special center designs as well.
Love the butterfly and bird.
