Sewing indoors - 1800s


Edgar Melville Ward (American painter, 1839–1915) Quilting Party

We learned to sew patchwork at school while we were learning the alphabet; and almost every girl had a bed quilt of her own begun, with an eye to future house furnishing. I was not overfond of sewing, but I thought it best to begin mine early.

So I collected squares of calico, and undertook to put them together in my usual independent way, without asking direction. I liked assorting those little figured bits of cotton cloth, for they were scraps of gowns I had seen worn, and they reminded me of the persons who wore them.
