$300.00
Quantity available: 1
This scrap quilt is done in various red and blue calicos from the 1970's and early 1980. It was completed in 1981 as this is embroidered on the back edge of one side of this quilt along with the name Dot. This was made by Dorothy Brandenburg of Slinger, WI. She and her husband owned and operated the hotel in Slinger, WI. Each block of 4 triangles is 5.5" square. Each block is hand pieced and also hand quilted at 10 stitches per inch. There are 3 rows of quilting in each of the triangles making up this quilt. This is a very unusual quilt since it is "double sided". Each block is identical on both sides making this a double sided quilt. This quilt is almost the same as another made by Dorothy in 1987 which is listed under item #1004065. The difference between the two is that this one is pieced with the bases of the triangles red to red and then blue to blue creating a series of blue and red squares set on the diagonal. The other quilt is also double sided but the triangles are pieced red to blue and blue to red creating a scrap pattern. The sides of each quilt are done in a series of red calico triangles. There are no stains or wear. It appears to have never been used.
