Victorian Friendship Quilt

The other day I was out hitting the local Yard Sales, and I found this gorgeous1870s or so Friendship Quilt from N.Y. state.  (purchase on etsy)

 This entire quilt is hand pieced and hand stitched!

Nearly all of the blocks are signed in ink with the quilters name and home town. A few are embroidered on.

A few of the blocks have some shattering.

But most of the quilt is in great condition.

When I found this gorgeous quilt I almost died! It's so gorgeous!

The pattern used is a variation of Log Cabin called Courthouse Steps from what I understand.
