Young Man’s Fancy c. 1900

The National Quilt Museum’s curator, Judy Schwender, sought an exemplary collection of traditional nine patch quilts. The Antique Nine Patch quilt collection is an excellent complement to the modern twist New Quilts from an Old Favorite: Nine Patch, which is at The National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky. Each antique quilt sets apart as a unique identifier of the various ways a nine patch quilt is pieced and quilted.
