Chocolate browns are very indicative of the 1870s and ‘80s. While the color was called antimony or chrome orange in the nineteenth century, historians and collectors often call the color ‘cheddar’ today. Butterscotch fabrics often date to the middle of the nineteenth century and were frequently used as a background for a pieced pattern.
Butterscotch prints are often small, with the motifs closely packed together.
Obviously, the name of the quilter, the date and the location the quilt was made are basic details to include.
If the quilt is a gift, the recipient’s name can be included.
Using a window or light box, place the stabilized fabric over the written information and use it as a guide. Instead, I just use it as a guide, so that the words are the correct size and stay in a straight line.
Following a guide also helps make sure no mistakes or errors occur.
