Ulster Inspired Quilts

I wrote in 2011 about Ulster inspired quilts…or possibly Ultser inspired, per the research of Valerie Wilson published in 1991. You can click here to see that post.

The other day I stumbled across a top on eBay that so reminded me of a photo in that 1991 Uncoverings American Quilt Study Group (AQSG) research paper that I snapped it up.

And so the research continues.

Again, refer back to my original post on this subject by clicking here.

 UPDATE - 2017 February: Barbara Brackman posted some interesting photos of quilts on her blog today that contain the "shamrock or hearts" appliqué pattern that I have been writing about.
