This quilt is an amazing example of early applique. It was stitched entirely by hand! The tiny applique stitches are incredible! The tan along the sashing and leaves was most likely once green. The fugitive dye has left us with this earthy tan color. The bold red is a stable and reliable dye known as Turkey Red.
All four corners have been rounded. There is a hanging sleeve on both short ends of this quilt. The hanging sleeve was stitched in place by hand.
This quilt measures 62.5 x 78 inches. It is a light-weight quilt with cotton batting and a cream muslin backing.
This quilt is in great antique condition! There is a mark across the horizontal line of the back. The back is thinning with some light age marks and a few snags. On the front, the white background fabric is clean and bright but upon close inspection there is some evidence of yellow dye spots. This is very faint, but it should be noted. For a piece that is well over 100 years old, it is in excellent condition!
Please note, every attempt is taken to detail imperfections in photos, descriptions, and video. The nature of this item does lend itself to normal age-related issues and must be taken into consideration before purchasing.
