By The Journal's Wire Services An in-depth knowledge of textile history is necessary to accurately date quilts from America's past. Particularly in isolated areas, quiltmaking changed little over the years, so only a quilt's fabric — not its style — is of use in deducing its story. While few collectors can claim such expertise, most do enjoy knowing from whence their quilts came. According to Country Home magazine, even the novice collector will be able to place a wide number of quilts in their proper historical perspective by learning to recognize the most typical quilting styles of certain major epochs. During the years between the American Revolution and the beginning of the westward migration, bedcovers blossomed with cotton cutouts salvaged from leftover bits of expensive European chintz. Using a method called broderie perse (Persian embroidery), women carefully snipped around the bird and flower motifs of the imported chintzes and appliqued them on fields of plain domestic cloth to make the most of the patterned fabric available to them. Patchwork precursors of the pioneer quilts were also common, and many combined both the patchwork and the broderie perse techniques. Early quilts were usually constructed by adding border strips to a large, central fabric panel, giving the bedcover a framed effect. Two other early quilt types are linsey-woolsey and white work. , Linsey-woolsey quilts were made from large, vividly colored pieces of homespun sewn to a linen or wool backing and lavishly quilted in large floral or feather motifs. White work bedcovers, often called bridal quilts, were quilted in intricate patterns using the tiniest of stitches. During the years of the westward journey, from 1840 to 1870, the majority of America's pieced quilts were stitched. As families moved West, fabric (though readily available in the East) once again became a scarce commodity. That scarcity led to uniquely American patchwork masterpieces. These were the years of the Hole in the Barn Door, the Rocky Mountain Puzzle, and hundreds of other Spies like us In 1951, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were convicted of conspiring to commit espionage for the Soviet Union.

ROSS MISS. 9th 827-1379 patchwork patterns that reflected both the joys and sorrows of women's lives during pioneer times. Each one a work of art created out of the scrap bag, these quilts were stitched of geometric pieces painstakingly cut from years of cast-off clothing and tired household linens. Only on occasion were these precious scraps teamed with a new piece of cloth. Techniques as well as tastes changed during this part of the 19th century. Overblown chintzes and monochrome copperplate prints made way for tiny domestic calicoes, roller printed in a new range of hues made possible by the advent of colorfast synthetic dyes. The cramped quarters of prairie homesteads called for quilting on a smaller scale, so women turned to piecing and appliqueing lap-sized blocks rather than beginning with a quilt-sized piece of cloth. Applique quilts remained popular during these years, particularly in the more affluent East and South. But, because they usually required new cloth to execute their careful color schemes, applique quilts often lack the earthy exuberance of the scrap bag quilts from the same era. By the 1860s the sewing machine had begun to lighten the daily sewing tasks of thousands of American women, but quilting itself remained primarily a manual task. Practicality aside, quilting by machine would have put an end to the quilting bee — that cherished social event that made pioneer life a little easier to bear. Hastily thrown up shanties along the westward trail made way for gingerbread mansions filled to the rafters with sumptuous furnishings and awash with a rainbow of brilliant colors.
