Applique in May Signature Block


Here we are with the most important block in the Sally Post Floral Sampler quilt. It's the signature block. I am so thankful Sally took the time to intricately cross stitch her name, age and date on this block. It gives us so much to think about. What was life like in 1854? I'm sure she was an experienced quilter at age 63. It appears as if fabrics were purchased with this quilt in mind. How much did fabric cost in 1854? Was it readily available? Maybe not if red prints had to be substituted. I think I'll do a little more research. I'm not ready to close the book on our Applique in May quilt.
