19th Century Sampler

A quilt I made by hand as a gift for Prof P. These are 4" squares of vintage 19th century fabrics and some reproductions of 19th cenury designs. I chose to use only dark and light tones of blues and browns and attempted to evenly distribute the colors over the entire quilt. The squares are latticed with plain muslin; the back is a contemporary wide beige paisley.

 

This was an absolute thrill to make! The fabrics are to die for and getting to revisit each one while patchworking, then while handquilting, and again while binding made me smile.
