This signed quilt by Sarah Porter Blazer and dated 1858 reminds me of a Sunflower pattern or a Peony. I wondered about the date of 1858, thinking that may be the year Sarah Porter Blazer was born as I didn't really feel it was made then, but more of a circa 1880's-90's quilt. That could have put her in her 20's or 30's when making the quilt. The quilt came out of the Kansas City, Kansas area. This quilt may have originated in Kentucky or Tennessee. It is in excellent condition and looks unused. The hand applique is very nice and there is quality workmanship. The hand quilting is done at 12-13 spi, so fine. This is not a busy quilt and can be used in many ways. Note the way the flower is made with the thin green strips separating the petals and the lovely cheddar centers. This is a 6 block quilt and displays quite nicely. Kansas
Update,,, I recently was contacted by a quilt research person and she found this through her research: "Sarah Porter, born 1842 in Ohio married Jefferson Blazer in 1858 and in 1880 was listed in the census as living in Kansas. " This gives the date, 1858 some meaning that this is most likely a wedding quilt. It may have been made by Sarah herself or even possibly a wedding gift made by someone else presenting it to Sarah.

Offering this wonderful quilt, Nosegay, that has a similar look to the Anne Orr patterns. Note the surrounding staggered border of the small blue postage stamp squares. Anne Orr was known for her style of quilts that often were called "Computer Quilts", due to the fact that they were small postage stamp sized blocks put together with solid colored fabrics and had a rather Deco like computer generated pattern.

This small scale hexagons quilt with pieces only 1 inch in diameter is a labor of love made back in the 1920's or 30's. This pattern is called a Field of Diamonds.

There is also some machine quilting on the border and a small area on one side, unsure why. Maybe the maker was ready to get finished and that was the quickest way or possible she or he,, just got a new sewing machine and wanted to show off the work by adding it to the quilt. We'll never know. The quilt is in very good condition. A colorful quilt with many colors used and some of the fabrics look to be feedsacks. How the quilter coordinated the colors using prints and solids. For the binding the back was brought forward to the front and machine stitched down.
