Antique signature quilt - 1848 Pennsylvania

Such a charming star pattern from my signature quilt collection. 1848 signature quilt from Delaware and Chester County, Pennsylvania. Dated 1848 Signature star quilt - Quaker families. Main surname is Tyson and also several  Hannum, Haycock, Dutton, Williams, Baker and Thomas.

This block is for David Cregg or Craig of Wilmington, Delaware (state) who married his block neighbor Isabella S. Tyson in 1849.

What a great collection of Turkey Red fabrics.  Quaker families. The main towns are Aston and Chichester. Also Concord, West Chester, and Middletown. It is related to several other quilts in my collection and those of my friends and also Chester County
