    If you can stay calm while all around you is chaos then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation

    That quilt with the piece of the envelope is a family heirloom in my opinion

    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.

    I thing it's wonderful that the documentation stayed with the quilt for 123 years. It's rare for that to happen.
    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.
