Four Patch Doll Quilt: Circa 1860
  Four Patch Doll Quilt: Circa 1860   $385

This Four Patch Doll Quilt was likely a practice piece for a young girl. The diagonal line quilting along the border, for instance, is clearly an effort at fine stitching yet the wobbliness and irregularity of the lines may indicate it was made by a novice.

The small scale of these Variable Stars could not be more appealing. They are made of a nice mixture of primarily brown and green prints. The stars are contained with a wonderful zigzag border. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Pinned to the quilt is a label saying "Made by Susan L. Mathews about 1888 Property of Julia Gorham Crane".
