Autograph Quilt - (Textiles) Glossary of Antique Terms

Autograph Quilt - (Textiles) Autograph Quilts first became popular in the mid-1800s. Indelible ink was available after 1840 and these quilts were inscribed with names and sometimes poetry. Many of the autograph quilts that we see today were signed by family and friends as a remembrance to people, to take with them when they moved out West. They are also called friendship quilts.
