Q1 Who are the people that signed the quilt?
This is the most interesting question, and finding the answer is a lot of fun. I use Ancestry.com for most of my research about the names and locations on the quilt. There are 75 names on the quilt (some blocks have two names, usually a married couple). I have some information on at least 50 names in the quilt. I have found that more people are related to the bride and groom than I initially thought, and there are also many neighbours who make a contribution.
Q2 Is it a Quaker quilt?
The quilt is certainly typical of Quaker wedding quilts made in the 1850s in Pennsylvania. However, the bride's family were Presbyterian, many of the family members were also Presbyterian although some neighbours were Quakers. If anyone can offer suggestions I would appreciate your comments.
