Overall: 28 x 28 x 1/4 in. ( 71.1 x 71.1 x 0.6 cm )
Whole pieced unfinshed quilt top of an all-over "honey-comb" patchwork design surrounding a "compass" or "wheel" central medallion motif within a hexagonal block, consisting of hexagonal, triangular, and diamond-shaped pieces; each piece lined with paper, held together by whip-stitching around the perimeter of each hexagon and basted onto hexagonal "honeycomb" paper patterns. Fabrics appear to all be vegetable-dyed two- and three-color roller-printed cottons made in England in the early nineteenth century.
Gift of Isabella Vaché Cox
