Rare and collectable . Patchwork Dated 1874 and full of wonderful fabrics from that era and    earlier . Centre features a silk star within a flower and four hearts . Lovely dress fabrics, chintzes  and tartan much loved by Queen Victoria . Mary Ann  ( the maker )was most probably  the daughter of a large house to have access to these fabrics - possibly her own clothes .

We rescued this 'wallhanging' from the centre of a much larger,in its time amazing patchwork , but sadly all the outer region was in shreds. The signature and date was originally in the outer corner , now carefully added to the back. 

We believe it originated in Gloucestershire
