I got an answer about my Great Grandmother's quilt. I was trying to do some research online to find out when in history people began to get their quilts machine quilted. I came across the name Harriet Hargrave - from what I read, she seemed like she would be able to give me some idea, so I e-mailed her my questions with a link to my last post. She quickly replied, and told me that the quilt is a 1920-1930 era tulip quilt and the type of machine quilting on the quilt was quite common during that time. She said that there are quilts from the late 1800's on display at the Smithsonian that are machine quilted. Interesting!
