Detail of Front, Detail of Back

This unique baby quilt was made by Rebecca Kohler in 1832 for her son, Jacob. The Kohlers were of Pennsylvania German descent and the designs in this quilt reflect Rebecca’s heritage. It is interesting to note, however, that the pillarprint back is a highstyle English furnishing fabric.
Appliqué, cotton fabrics, hand-sewn.
