1860's Mrs. M.J. Whitham Signed Quilt Square, Found in Portland, Maine


#326:

This is a beautiful old hand signed quilt square handmade from early gingham fabrics. 18 different squares were found in a house in Portland Maine, Cumberland County. This one has the signature "Mrs. M.J. Whitham" handwritten in center, in old early dip pen handwriting and from the period.

Most likely there was a quilting bee and each member made and signed their own squares. Some of the family members are related by same surnames, others may also be related family members. For whatever reason, the handmade quilt was never finished. The square is crisp and unwashed, and handsewn with the utmost care.

Found in Portland, Maine area, which is in Cumberland County. Would be beautiful framed. One of a kind. Was her name Mary Jane Whitham? See other quilt squares on our site by search for the word quilt.

Size: 12 x 12 inches.
