19th-Century English Quilts
Usually patchwork, often of triangles, squares, or hexagons; made using paper templates the fabric was tacked to, then the pieces sewn together. Sometimes the maker didn’t remove the paper, and all sorts of things have been found: shopping lists, love letters...The palette is often brown/cream-based rather than the brighter colors of American quilts.
