Quilt in cheerful fabrics of every color is hand quilted with small, even stitches in an overall close grid pattern. Most of the fabrics used in the bowties are from the early 1900s, but a few of the fabrics probably date from the late 1800s. It is standard practice among quilters to use their "stash" of fabrics, so this explains the range of dates.
