Discovered locally here in Wichita, Kansas, this quilt is visually captivating! It is a stunning example of early applique work. The Turkey Red dye is vibrant and steady. The triangle sashing adds wonderful interest to the quilt.
This piece was stitched by hand. The binding was secured by machine. The applique work was stitched in both white and dark thread. The four large panels along with the dyes and techniques points to a nineteenth century make date.
This quilt measures 68 x 72.5 inches. It is a light-weight quilt with cotton batting and a cream backing.
This quilt is in good antique condition! There are normal age-related issues including fabric thinning, wear, tanning, and light storage marks. The batting is exposed in some areas. The binding is beginning to fray. The yellow fabric has bled to the back. Once, the tan was most likely green. The fugitive dyes have left us with a light cream/tan color. Some light perfume smell has seeped into the quilt fibers. It has been aired out but not submerged in water. This quilt is stunning and a true antique!
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.
This quilt will be sold as-is and was not washed. Machine washing is not recommended.
