Dated 1836 Antique Nine Patch Quilt

I find it very hard to resist early quilts that are dated (one of the reasons I love signature quilts). Here's my earliest dated quilt and it has the owner's/maker's name: Sarah P. Southerland, 1836. The stitching is teeny cross-stitch - click on photo to enlarge and see the stitching.

There is only one name so it is not a "signature quilt" though it could be called a signed quilt. The pattern is uneven 9 patch with blocks set on point. Part of the Starley Collection.
