Blue and White (With A Little Red) Quilts

Earlier I wrote about the preview party for Patterns of History: Quilts of the Summit County Historical Society. Now I’d like to share a few of the quilts on display with you.

First, the blue and white quilts.


The tiny feathered edges are well done, and the scallop edge is shallower than many. You can see the fading on the blue where the quilt was exposed to sun, probably when it was on a bed.
An Ohio quilt display has to include an Ohio Star quilt.
This Devils Claw design features subtle variations of blue.
Tiny, even quilting stitches are the highlight of this nine patch variation.
As promised, an applique quilt that features reds.

These and many more quilts and coverlets are displayed throughout the Simon Perkins Mansion and the John Brown House during October. Self-guided tours are available Wednesday-Saturday from 1-4 p.m. for an admission fee to non-Society members.
