Chocolate Floral

Bernice Paschal & Peter Jacobs
This quilt was made in a transition 9 patch pattern with 10 inch squares. After the 9 squares are sewn together the squares are cut through the center and horizontal and vertical lines rearranged and sewn back together. Four identical sets were made and assembled in a Quilt as You Go technique.

Glendora Simonson & Peter Jacobs
This quilt was inspired by the quilts of Gee's Bend, Alabama.

Quadrans - Sydenham 488 - Crawford 250/2

Crawford suggests the moneyer is perhaps descended from Marcus Aburius, praetor of 176. He also notes a number of blundered and incomplete legends that can appear on the obverse. Sydenham notes a date of 120 B.C.E. (page 58) that is later than the date of 132 B.C.E. that Crawford identifies.

Semis - Sydenham 510 - Crawford 256/2a

Crawford says the moneyer is presumably Quintus Caecilius Metellus, consul of 123. Sydenham notes a date range of 119 -110 B.C.E. (p 59) that is later than the date of 130 B.C.E. that Crawford identifies.

Denarius - Sydenham 505 - Crawford 267/1

Crawford says the apex identifies the moneyer as Titus Quinctius Flamininus, perhaps the son of Titus Quinctius Flamininus, consul of 123. The Macedonian shield alludes to the victory of Titus Quinctius Flamininus, consul of 198, over Philip V of Macedon. The use of the Dioscuri as reverse type, unusual in this period, perhaps records Flamininus' offering to the Dioscuri in recognition of the liberation of Greece. Sydenham notes a date range of 119-110 B.C.E. (p...

Denarius - Sydenham 507 - Crawford 257/1

Crawford says the moneyer is presumably Marcus Vargunteius. Sydenham refers to the artistic innovation on the reverse, a slow quadriga with three of the horses raising their right forelegs notes a date range of 119 -110 B.C.E. (p 59) that is later than the date of 130 B.C.E. that Crawford identifies.

Denarius - Sydenham 429 - Crawford 229/1a

Crawford states that the moneyer is perhaps Marcus Aurelius Cotta, father of Gaius Aurelius Cotta, Marcus Aurelius Cotta and Lucius Aurelius Cotta, consuls of 75, 74 and 65; he may also be a younger son of Lucius Aurelius Cotta, consul of 144 born therefore c. 160 or later. He considers Hercules drawn by centaurs as an artistic motif and regards it as a variation of a normal Hercules in a biga type, perhaps chosen to...

Quadrans - Sydenham 508b - Crawford 257/4

Crawford says the moneyer is presumably Marcus Vargunteius. Sydenham notes a date range of 119 -110 B.C.E. (p 59) that is later than the date of 130 B.C.E. that Crawford identifies.

Denarius - Sydenham 509 - Crawford 256/1

Crawford says the moneyer is presumably Q. Caecilius Metellus, consul of 123. Sydenham describes the vehicle as a slow quadriga, and notes a date range of 119 -110 B.C.E. (p 59) that is later than the date of 130 B.C.E. that Crawford identifies.

Denarius - Sydenham 432 - Crawford 231/1

Crawford says the moneyer is presumably Gaius Renius. Of the identification of the goddess as Juno Caprotina: Sydenham makes an unqualified identification (p.50), while Crawford considers there to be insufficient reason to make such a claim (RRC p. 264); Dr. Badian parenthetically identifies her as Caprotina in his own note. Crawford says the most significant fact to be connected with the type is probably the association of Juno with the goat before the institution of...

Denarius - Sydenham 629

Denarius - Sydenham 443 - Crawford 224/1

Crawford notes that the absence of the cognomen Caesar and of any of the types used on coins by Iulii Caesares suggests that neither this moneyer was not Iulii Caesares. Sydenham notes a date range of 133-126 B.C.E. (page 51) that is later than the date of 141 B.C.E. that Crawford identifies.

As - Sydenham 428 - Crawford 203/2

Sydenham says that Gaius Maianius is probably the last moneyer to strike as-coins prior to its withdrawal from the regular currency about 133 B.C.E.

Denarius - Sydenham 444 - Crawford 225/1

Both Crawford and Sydenham draw attention to the legend NOM in the position usually occupied by the name ROMA. Sydenham, noting that it appears on six different reverse dies, feels it is intentional. Crawford says ROMA appears without exception on official pieces of this issue and thus is a mistake. He says the moneyer is perhaps Lucius Atilius Nomentanus, perhaps the same Nomentanus who is probably to be restored at Lucilius 56M and 69M and...

Quadrans - Sydenham 479a - Crawford 265/3

According to Crawford, the moneyer is presumably Q Fabius Maximus, consul of 116. Sydenham notes a date range of 125-120 B.C.E. (page 53) that is later than the date of 127 B.C.E. that Crawford identifies.

As - Sydenham 396 - Crawford 215/2a

Quadrans - Sydenham 403c - Crawford 216/5

Joanna's Quilt

Jane Mitchell Eliasof & Peter Jacobs
I had made several quilts by the time I made this one, however, I had used a sewing machine and strip piecing techniques. I wanted to learn how to make one purely by hand. I enrolled in a class at the Montclair Historical Society, my first contact with the organization, and learned traditional piecing and applique techniques. I hand quilted it and even tried trapunto (stuffed) quilting. In a weird quirk of fate, 20 years...

Weekend in Lancaster

Jane Mitchell Eliasof & Peter Jacobs
I saw this design in a hotel on a weekend visiting the Amish country. I sketched the pattern on a napkin during breakfast thinking it would be a fun design to hand quilt.

Idle Hands

Ollie Samuels & Peter Jacobs
My mother was a quilter. Her quilts were not the traditional wedding ring or pinwheel designs; they were utilitarian but also pretty and unique. She made her quilts by hand using any and all kinds of fabric, mostly scrap material obtained through years of working at a dress factory. After retirement, her hands were never idle. When she died our family discovered even more beautiful quilts that she had left behind. I have always sewn...

Not Your Granny's Tea Party

Karen E. Jack & Peter Jacobs
Since 2008, the Teacups, a multicultural female group of friends have enjoyed fellowship, travel, and quilting as often as possible when they get together. The first Teacup challenge was to exchange three charm squares (5 inch squares) in orange, green and purple with other. I made this quilt as a tribute to my grandmother and her tea parties. It is machine pieced and machine quilted.
