- Quantity Available: 1
This is a very early quilt from the 1820-1830's period. It is white with a pieced 8 pointed star pattern done in a pink and green tiny floral pattern fabric. This quilt is hand pieced and hand quilted with a cotton batting. The hand quilting is exceptional. It has 12 to 14 stitched per inch and has stipple quilting as shown in the pictures. The quilt itself is 84" x 84" but the sides have a strip of handmade lace 3 inches wide plus a 4" linen fabric border and the bottom has the same 3" handmade lace plus a 9" wide border. The edges of the quilt have a saw tooth pattern border in addition to the added lace and linen edging. The backing is the same white fabric as the front. There are no stains but light fading and some deterioration of the pink fabric. The tiny green dyed flowers on the pink fabric are deteriorating with age probably due to the type of dye used to create the green flowers. Overall, this is still a great quilt with wonderful graphics and the exceptional hand quilting from as early as the 1820's makes it a marvelous collector item.
