Mary C. (Vernon) Vaughan's Quilt from the 1870's|
This quilt is a combination of piece work (patch work) and applique. The detailed quilting (which is hard to see in these pictures) was done by hand along with the use of a "stitching machine" from the 1860's. The sewing machine was patented in 1851 and smaller versions called "Stitching machines" were offered for home use.
