Quilt made for Henry Barnes
"Made March 1922"
says the label on the back.
I bet that was quilted in 1922 and pieced in the 1880s or '90s.
Much like this silk version from Laura Fisher Heritage Quilts.
Probably about 1890.
It's a variation of what we'd call a Trip Around the World
but it doesn't go around anywhere
Well that's not true. It gets to a point in the center of the universe.
Most of the versions I've found on line are from about 1880-1920.
No BlockBase number and no traditional name except maybe Postage Stamp.

I'd have guessed this one was from Bowmansville, Pennsylvania where
they loved to shade squares in novel and complicated designs, but the caption tells us
it was made in Brownsville, Nebraska.
That tan was probably another color once but it works great now as a neutral.
