Special request...Pillar Print

After I posted the photo of my quilt cupboard--ok, one of my quilt cupboards--I received a request from Sandra (Textile Time Travels blog) for a photo of the pillar print she spied on the top shelf.  The pillar print is the back and front edges of a pair of pillowcases dating to around 1830.

 note the squirrel

Probably my earliest piece.  Enjoy the photos.


  1. Oh my goodness! That is gorgeous! I don't think I've ever seen anything even similar to it! And you would know I love the squirrel! ---"Love"

  2. I think the pillar print from andover, winterthur museum reproduction has a squirrel on it
    now I have to go look!
    thanks for sharing its just beautiful

  3. Wow, LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Thanks for posting it.

  4. I love prints like that! You can find them mostly in upholstery fabric nowadays but sometimes you get lucky. And sometimes the upholstery fabric is light enough to use in a quilt. What a great find.
