Bull's Eye Quilt


This stunning Bull's Eye quilt was made in Berk's County Pennsylvania in 1900-1920 by a member of the Alverda H. Hoffman Herb family. This is one of four similar quilts made around the same time in that vacinity. Imagine, after all that piecing, this quilter decided to add some applique and lots of hand-quilting too. I love this quilt and I'm glad it has found a good home, the American Folk Art Museum.

Oh, I do LOVE this design! Imagine the accuracy in piecing to get this to lie flat! Beautiful!
