Description: A pieced quilt with one hexagonal piece of printed cotton on the face of the quilt bears a floral print and a picture of Queen Victoria with 'Jubilee 1887' printed around the picture. The quilt is backed with striped cotton and is padded with cotton batten. The face of the quilt is made of pieces of printed cotton cut hexagonally. The border is of a wide piece of printed cotton on two sides of the quilt. History: This is an example of a pieced or patchwork quilt. The hexagon quilt top was usually made by sewing the material around shaped pieces of paper that were sewn together and then the paper was removed. Fabrics were often traded with friends or remnants were bought to provide variety in the pattern. This quilt has one hexagon with material celebrating Queen Victoria's Jubilee, 1887.
