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.

1810 ca. Bed Cover, English. Quilted patchwork of printed cottons and wool wadding. From Curator: 'Centre is block-printed panel commemorating Golden Jubilee of King George III. Printed centres were manufactured in first quarter of 19th century and were so highly cherished that many were kept for a number of years before being incorporated into patchwork projects.' collections.vam.ac.uk suzilove.com
