Pattern Name: Sugar Loaf

Age: 1890s-1910

Quilting: hand-quilted with a utility quilting; hand-pieced

Material: turkey red, blue, and white solid and printed calico shirting, plant-dyed calicos, and a double pink calico border

Measurements: 82x80


Heritage: This quilt was found in New York. It is quintessentially a New England quilt! The triangles are quite well done, and the larger double pink border is also characteristic of the region. The different fabrics date from between 1840 and 1880s - the quilt dates to around 1880. The fabrics are really an incredible show! There are bright chrome yellows, delicate browns, and wonderful prints. The quilt itself is a thinner quilt and the fabric feels as though it has never been used.


Condition: Overall the piece is in good condition for its age. There are a few seam separations and a few spots of fabric wear to some of the triangles. The brown fabrics tend to be more delicate. There is also some wear to the edge of the quilt. This is normal given the age of the piece. The piece is a thinner quilt and sturdy. Overall, the quilt is still in great condition. Great care was taken to store and care for the quilt. With proper care, it will last many more years.
