1850 - 1875 "Harvest Sun" Pieced Quilt
- Description (Brief)
- Each of the “Harvest Sun” patterned blocks has a “Le Moyne Star” in the center. The placement of the blocks gives the quilt an overall kaleidoscope effect. Fabrics in the quilt include both floral and geometric roller-printed cottons. Simple diagonal and parallel lines were used for the quilting pattern.
- Probably made in Orange County, N. Y., the quilt was part of a much larger 1930s donation of over 180 textile-related objects. The donation included samplers, needlework tools, baskets, spinning wheels, and embroideries, among other items that are related to textile production in the 19th century.
