In Pearl's own words:
The Sarah Simms 1816 quilt is owned by my dear friend Dawn Licker. We
have talked over the years about reproducing some of her antique quilts
in her collection as patterns. This quilt just seemed to speak to me
even though the rest of the quilt was not very exciting. Sarah Simms
embroidered 1816 date with one strand of thread at the bottom of the
medallion. The Crewel embroidery was done with wool threads which I
believe have faded over the years. The embroidered center medallion was
framed with uneven sawtooth inner border and hexagons in the corners. It
was framed with 4 1/2” blocks, 20“ rectangles to make a wide border.
But the center of this quilt was my inspiration and I set the block on
point and added hexagon a border and repeated the sawtooth border to
frame the quilt.
The pattern contains two full color 22” x 34” pattern sheets with
full-size drawings for the center embroidery medallion, a color
embroidery stitch guide and easy to follow instructions.
