P is for Pennsylvania Patchwork Pillowcase


P is for Pieced Pillowcases from Pennsylvania

This case is circa 1876 and has both faux/simulated patchwork and regular pieceing.
 Center star section is faux patchwork aka cheater cloth and the border squares are pieced.

More piecing on the back. These patchwork and applique pillowcases are a uniquely Pennsylvania phenomenon.

Detail of a much earlier (1830s) Pennsylvania pillowcase also in my collection
