1900's Quilt Top, Honeycomb Crazy Quilt Pattern


Measures:  Approx. 67” X 80”

A handstitched quilt top from Western Maine, there are many different types of material used.  There are a few areas in need of loving repair, I have tried to picture all of these.  There are a few spots also pictured.  Her stitches are even and tiny, what patience.  She did a wonderful job coordinating her colors, another good example of the “Make Do” philosophy of the time.  I would put a date on this quilt top of the early 1900’s but it may be earlier.  This is a great project!
