PUSS IN THE CORNER
Unknown Quilt Maker
Collected in New Hampshire
78 x 84 inches
The Mother of All Scrap Quilts??
Oh, we know it's not that ... but it sure is wonderful...
This one gets an Award in our "What A Fantastic Idea!" Category.
The quilt maker simply combined two traditional, rather common pieced designs ~
"Puss in the Corner" and "A Thousand Triangles"
in in her own personal, unique way.
This textile is technically a comforter, as it is tied rather than quilted.
The maker tied the three layers with a heavy thread
in a few shades of greens and golds.
It feels like it may have a wool batting.
Wonderful color and a fine array of late 19th century cotton prints.
