Sunday Pics!

Like so many of us, I am enamored with photos from the Civil War period.  There aren't that many, and fewer still that have quilts in them!

This one is wonderful in a number of ways.  The attire dates it to the 1860's without question.  There is a dog in it!  And it isn't moving, which is amazing.  The room decor is classic.  And the quilt is actually clear enough to be fairly certain that it's a "snowball" pattern joined with plain alternate blocks and 4-patches.

1860's quilt with 2 couples

The photo looks almost candid.  Who were the people and where did they live?  Why were they looking at this quilt?  Why was someone taking a picture of this moment in time??

What a treat to be able to share in it.

A Blessed Sunday to you!


  1. I wonder if it is being presented to one couple from another? Great pic!

    1. Great thought! That makes a good story, too. ☺ Thanks for visiting!
