: Dated ca. 1855, this wool comforter was made by Mahaliah Jay who pieced this quilt of log cabin blocks in a labyrinth or Greek Key variation by machine. The key blocks are separated by strips of blue homespun wool. The back is brown plaid cotton. Jay quilted it with widely spaced diamonds and tied it between the quilting lines with cotton thread through bits of cotton fabric.
