Whig's Defeat
An image of a Turkey Red Paper Cut Applique Coverlet
This very graphic c.1845 Whig's Defeat quilt was one way a woman could make a statement about her political views 80 years before she gained the right to vote with the ratification of the 19th amendment on August 18, 1920.

This quilt celebrated the victory of Democrat James Polk over Henry Clay of the Whig party, which would later become the Republican party.

The double line quilting is indicative of the 1840s era. The quilt is pieced, appliqued and reverse appliqued, using Turkey red, white, and tobacco-dyed green. Tobacco-dyed green fabric changes color the minute it hits water, thus creating the very sought after taupe color.
