Early 1800's quilts were usually large (120 X 120), and often whole cloth quilts, or quilts of whole panels, such as the Tree of Life. Sometimes you would find quilts made of plain blocks (such as a simple Ohio star or nine patch) alternating with a plain block.
Trapunto (stuffed work) quilts were made until the 1840's when their popularity waned.
I don’t like dishes where the seasoned breadcrumbs and the seasonings clash.
You can also increase the Old Bay seasoning, but if you do, then you’ll want to cut the 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
The oldest quilts in the Smithsonian collection go back to about 1780.
A side note from The Patchwork Pilgrimage: "Further proof that ornamental patchwork is no newcomer to the church is provided by this fascinating pieced silk chasuble that is believed to have been made around 1540.Although the technique of quilting existed throughout history (quilted items have been discovered in Egyptian tombs, for example, and French knights used quilted jackets under their armor), quilts as we think of them didn't start showing up on the American scene until just prior to 1800.I believe the earliest existing European quilts are a pair of whole cloth trapunto ones, telling the story of Tristan and Isolde dating from the early 1400's.For example, the clearly defined cross would probably have escaped detection when the garment was folded or rolled.The maker was Elizabeth Belling Arundel, a member of one of the leading Catholic families of England, and the chasuble has remained in the possession of the Arundel family from that time.However, the idea that all early quilts were made of worn clothing is a myth.
