Annie was a member of the Peachey Amish community in Belleville - the least conservative of the Old Order Amish in the "Big Valley". The Peachey congregation still conformed to the conservative rules and customs but had greater freedom in dress and home decoration, i.e. the women could wear black bonnets and indoor plumbing was allowed...

This is a Vintage Hawaiian Quilt, made in the 1930's of red and white cotton. It is hand sewn and machine sewn, possibly by a treadle sewing machine. It has a four pointed central design, and a red and white applied border. It measures 84 x 80 inches, and is in fair condition, some stains, I tried to photograph them . On the selvage of the cotton material it says in red “Honor Pure Finish”. It has been noted that that was used in the 1930's, but no more information about that company.

It is well quilted with a variety of patterns. The center is crosshatched with cables in two borders and flowers in the corners. The outer border is quilted with overlapping circles...

Muted shades of grey, red-maroon and black typify the aesthetic of the Old Order Amish in the midwest, who in contrast to their brethren in Pennsylvania, often made perfectly scaled crib quilts. This one likely hails from Indiana and is in the Hole in the Barn Door pattern. The fabrics are heavy cotton, and the stitching, done in black thread, is small and consistent. The grey fabric has some areas of fading, but overall the quilt is in great condition with a substantial feel. 34" x 44".

In addition to vivid colors and heavy sashing, North Carolina quilters often used partial blocks at the top of their quilts. These traditional Lemoyne blocks are composed of cheddar and deep rusty brown solid fabrics, framed by a heavy green sashing. The back is unbleached "domestic" typical of the period. The quilting is done in a cloud pattern throughout. Condition is very good with a few minor stains. 68" x 80".
