Barbara says – This quilt was acquired in the late 1990s in Houston at International Quilt Festival. The fabrics are now extremely fragile and breaking up, but it is still one of my favourite quilts. Completely hand stitched – piecing, appliqué and quilting, thin cotton wadding – its likely date is somewhere in the 1850s. The quilting is neat, fine and simple with triple diagonal lines in one direction only across the entire piece and main patches outlined.
