Antique New Jersey Signature Quilt

Thought I'd share some more of this New Jersey signature quilt made for Elizabeth Hoppough in about 1850.


Look at the tiny scale and detail of that green print - yes, print! Click on the photo to enlarge. And the pink print is precious too.

Here's Elizabeth block:
from Hunterdon County, New Jersey.  Main surname is Hoppough and was likely made for Elizabeth Hoppough whose name and birth date of 1835 are listed in a center block and her parents are also on the quilts as well as their next door neighbor Elizabeth Neighbor (no, I can't make this stuff up).

And you've got to love those hearts and there is another delicate green print. Click to see detail
