Jane Pizar Marriage Quilt Date?

I have fallen in love with patchwork, specifically 18thC European patchwork. For some reason, I always remembering thinking that patchwork was only American. How wrong I was! Barbara Brackman, Quilt Historian, has a wonderful post on the Jane Pizar wedding quilt, and I believe like Brackman, that it dates to the end of the 18th Century. The only problem I see is it will cost a fortune to acquire all the snippets of fabrics to reproduce such a beauty! But I am well on my way …


  1. I see you have fallen for Jane Pizars charm. It is in my local museum but not shown on many occasions.
    I photographed it for my blog some years back and Barbara Brackman contacted me to use my information. I am desperate to start it but other things get in the way.

    1. Thank you, Sue, for your comment. How wonderful to live so close to such resources. Are you familiar with Petra Prins and An Moonen? I am in the process of acquiring as many fabrics that are similar to 18thC ones so I can build a proper stash to make several quilts.
