Synopsis: Patterns and instructions for a quilt of 19th century Pennsylvania Dutch designs, some pieced, some applique, some a mix of both. These patterns have a feel of Hex Signs, but are great folk art. Designs taken from the Collection of the York County Heritage Trust, York, Pennsylvannia. Great carry-along project. . . applique circles are completed separately,before the quilt assembly. Full size templates, technique instruction, quilter tested. Some applique and foundation piecing experience recommended. The Hearts & Hnads quilt was assembled and quilted in 1937-38 using circle motifs stitched around 1880. According to Loucks family oral history, at least part of the delay was due to the women of the famly becoming more interested in needlpoint than in quilting! Hearts & Hands was given to the York County Heritage Trust by Walter B. Loucks in honor of the artistry of Elsie Bott Loucks, who laid out the circles and oversaw their assembly and the quilting. The quilt is in the care of the York County Historical Society Museum, York, PA. Finished quilt size: 80 1/2" x 102" (can be larger with larger borders).
