Quilt dated 1903, Shirk
Green calicoes are among the hardest prints to date in antique quilts.
They were classic "bread & butters," the fabric that sold year after year
and paid the bills.
The S.H. Greene Company had a line of Washington Prints.

Here are a few quilts dated in the 1900-1915 years with similar prints.

Showing once again how hard these green calicoes are to date.
1904, Lizetta Schweitzer Coprio
I'd probably have dated these more like 1880-1900
but I guess 1880-1920 would be better.
1906, Clara E
1910, Grandma West
1913, Ella Strouse, Mennonite Heritage Center
UPDATE: These green calicoes are NOT poison green; they are overdyed with various nontoxic coloring agents.
