That is a wonderful find Ivy. You have a real piece of history. I quilt,, but with a sewing machine. The woman who made yours probably sat and sewed by hand after the children were in bed. I think the pattern is called grandmothers flower garden.
Very lovely Ivy.....I love looking at old pieces like these and you've certainly found a nice one here!

thanks everyone,i just love antique textiles.
If you're up for a bit of detective work, you may want to see how much of the history of the quilt you can trace. If the Norton Horticultural Society which issued the prize certificate had records that still exist, that would be a good place to start.
