1875 - A central rosette surrounded by concentric borders of hexagons and frames made from strips of silk braids and ribbons likely to have been used for furnishings. Possibly made by Ellen Charnley (nee Smart) of Wigan.
The Mary Prince Coverlet. The color arrangement of the hexagon rosettes makes a wonderful pattern in this antique quilt. Photo credit: The Quilt Museum and Gallery, which is an independent museum operated by The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles.
