Pattern Name: Sugar Loaf

Age: 1860s-1870s

Quilting: utility quilting in the rectangle - hand pieced and hand-quilted

Material: 1930s flour sack fabrics, novelty prints and shirting on a floral flour sack background; plain cotton backing

Measurements: 84x70


Heritage: This quilt was found in Indiana and is a truly remarkable quilt. Closely resembling my favorite Pickle Dish pattern, this is actually a variation of a Sugar Loaf with the blocks turned on edge.  The precise geometry and vibrant colors make this quilt a head-turner.  It is unusual to find such a vibrant quilt without any wear, but this quilt is in near-perfect condition.  


Condition: Overall the piece is in excellent condition for its age.  There are a few spots of normal wear to the fabrics throughout the piece and a few storage stains here and there.  The quilt is, however, in impeccable condition.  Both strong and sturdy.  This quilt would be great adorning a bed or a wall - whatever you like!  She can handle it.
