Post 9 - A Month of Antique Quilts - Antique Red and Green Signature Quilt

 Thanks for joining me for another antique quilt. Hope you are enjoying seeing all these different antique quilts and learning a bit of history too. Please leave me a comment and let me know if there is a special pattern or design or color scheme you'd like to see. I just might have what you are looking for in my collection.

Red and Green Signature quilt from Easton, Pennsylvania. An interesting and unusual combination of blocks.

Presentation quilt inscribed and dated: "Easton PA 1846. Presented to Solon Chapin by his Mother in law Mrs. Hocker 1846". This is the presentation block: (click to enlarge) and read

This block was made as a memorial for her friend who had died during the making of the quilt at aged 86.

Solon was a famous bridge architect and lived in Easton Pennsylvania. 
Here is the full quilt which is large, 98" x 100":
