Red & Green Antique Signature Quilt, Day 12 Quilt Extravaganza

Unusual red and green signature album quilt. Sign of the Times trunk show and class.  Dated 1879 signature quilt from Pennsylvania (Tuscarora, Bradford Co.)  Some of the family names  are Hall, Montgomery, Chamberlain, Lake, and Wood. 

Love this rose with a simple sentiment, Forget me not, Forget me never -Em Wood

A number of the blocks have very small buttonhole applique stitching and fine chain stitched stems. In addition to the variety of mostly floral motifs, it also has a variety of quilting designs.
