Antique Rolling Stones Quilt Blocks Pennsylvania German

Antique Rolling Stone signature quilt blocks from Montgomery Co. Pennsylvania and dated 1865. Names were written "signed" by a paid scrivener (writer - see his initials in corner) and some blocks still have the original signed paper from the named person. Part of my antique signature quilt trunk show. Come see them in Kansas City KS  June 7-9, 2018

This block was written for Susan Binder. Yes, the scrivener was dyslexic and also not a native  English speaker - his 1st language was almost certainly German.

Block for Mary/Maria Polsgrofe or  Polsgrove

This block was written for Josiah Davidheiser
