Just had to show you

Just had to show you this 19th century quilt I picked up last week.
Sort of a pineapple applique. The pineapple has long been known as a symbol of hospitality.

More research needed to be done on more precise dating. I am thinking about 1860!!. Any thoughts on this welcome.
Barbara Brackman where are you when I need you.


  1. Pineapple, or perhaps cactus? I don't know why, but I thought cactus when I saw the picture. It's beautiful anyway.

  2. I love it! The quilting looks very nice as well. The border looks to be full of leaves - could there be initials or a date hiding in there?

  3. Janet, I will have a really close look ( at the cabin at the moment) thanks for the tip

  4. That is a beautiful quilt... What a wonderful find.
    I am soo jealous!
