Full Description


A quilt that keeps giving, this piece has so many wonderful details! The fabrics are an outstanding collection of earth-tone calicos from the turn of the century. It was hand pieced in a pattern known as ‘square-in-a-square.’

The quilting was done by hand in white thread. It is a simple cross-hatch quilting. The binding was completed by bringing the back to the front and hand stitched in place. The most dynamic feature is the back! It is a bold floral that makes a statement!

While I estimate that the top is an antique, I believe the quilt was possibly finished at a later date. The back fabric is most likely a newer (1960s-80s) fabric. While the batting is cotton or cotton blend, it is a thicker weight than is common with antique quilts.

This piece measures 84 x 89 inches. It is a thick, cozy quilt with cotton batting and a bold floral backing.


This quilt is in great condition. One fabric that is used in 3-4 locations, has experienced some very localized dye rot which has then exposed part of the batting. There are a few areas of brown dye run that have bled onto the lighter fabrics. Overall, this piece is sound, great for use or display!

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. Machine washing is not recommended.
