Here is a blurry preview of my newest quilt— tumbling blocks in navy, white and orange. Japanese cotton and found fabrics. My mother and one of her quilting cronies did the piecing. As of now it is my intention to hand quilt it.

Everything unknown. Indigo monochrome patchwork quilt. Japanese inspired if not actually Japanese in origin. Quilted with stylized waves pattern. If I were to totally make a guess at the era I’d say early half of 20th c. If anyone has more accurate information I’d love to hear it.

Solar System, Ellen Harding Baker, 1876
wool-fabric applique, wool braid, wool and silk embroidery


The design of Ellen’s striking and unusual quilt resembles illustrations in astronomy books of the period. Ellen used the quilt as a visual aid for lectures she gave on astronomy in the towns of West Branch, Moscow, and Lone Tree, Iowa. Astronomy was an acceptable interest for women in the nineteenthth century and was sometimes even fostered in their education.
