Another antique tile quilt discovered
Here is a tile quilt found on Pinterest. We know nothing about it except that it appears to be made in the USA in 1893, apparently by someone whose initials were CWB.
It's a very nice example. I see hands, hearts, eyeglasses, scissors, stars, that very showy American flag, a house or maybe it is a schoolhouse or church, a horseshoe, a pitcher, more initials, "RAY" and "RW". Are those initials in the second block down, second from left? "DUO" or just shapes? The more you look the more you find.
Oh, I wish we knew more about it.
