Antique 1868 Odd Fellows Cross Quilt, signed with initials JHM and date 1868 in one corner. It measures 81×94″. Comprised of 47 blocks, 9.5×9.5″, set on point, 6 by 7, with solid white alternating squares and setting triangles. The red fabric is a wonderful Turkey Red print, still intact. It is hand pieced, hand appliqued, and hand quilted. In fact, from what I can tell, each of the alternating squares are quilted with different motifs, this is a Quilting Sampler! There is a thin cotton batting and white cotton reverse. The edge is finished with a narrow applied binding, almost like a piping. It is in good condition with some spots and water mark on a corner. This quilt is part of the Living Estate of widely respected Sharon Stark of Sharon’s Antiques Vintage Fabrics and Textiles of Eastern PA.
