Pennock Album, c. 1840
by Windham Fabrics

Threadbear Quilting | Pennock Album by Windham FabricsThe Pennock Album Quilt is thought to have been made by Isabelle Pennock Lukens for Sarah Wistar Pennock of Philadelphia and Chester County PA.

This quilt, which the fabric Pennock Album, c. 1840 has been derived from, is a fine example of template piecing and includes a wide variety of early to mid 19th century printed cotton fabrics. Ink drawings and handwritten names decorate the squares along with the dates of 1842 and 1843.

The Quilt top is an important part of Chester County’s vast quilting heritage. Elaborately pieced or appliqu├ęd friendship quilts, vibrant crazypatterns, and plain utilitarian quilted bed covers are among the many quilts made in Chester County for the past 150 years.
