|Five Patch Chain with Borders|
This is a sampler quilt originally made by Barbara B. Snyder. Here is a link to the 1880s blog site so you can check out a photo of the quilt she made. The blocks are set on point. This block is finished at 5 inches.
Fabrics: The four patches ~ pink ? cut from an 8 inch square from swap; dark green (in place of black) is cut from a FQ, by Jeanne Poore, the rest of the salvage is missing; yellow is a FQ with no salvage; red border is Old Sturbridge Village Collection for Marcus Bros and the green border is Sturbridge Village Greens ~ 10 inch square collection of 14 prints I ordered from Keepsake Quilting a bazillion years ago. ;0)
Yep... therapy is needed.... more fabric please! lol
This is the perfect quilt to use even the smallest of scraps from the Civil War BOW. One really gets how every piece of fabric was used back in the day. The amazing part is HOW they were used, the designs and blocks these women came up with. Truly amazing and inspiring even to this day.
