Barbara Brackman recently wrote a blog entry on the identity of the fellow in this 1876 centennial print. You can go here to read her conclusions. I was particularly interested in her post because I have a crib quilt that contains a piece of the centennial print.
The centennial print dates to around 1876 but other fabrics in this quilt are much later, some from the early 20th century. I have always liked the colorful mitered border on this crib quilt. It is from Pennsylvania.
