About Antique Quilt Fragments - Finished
Antique finished fragments are pieces of antique quilts too damaged for restoration. (Remember, 95% of my quilt collection is in original condition, with no restoration necessary). The undamaged section of the antique quilt is removed and rebound with same date or older fabric.
Occasionally, we are able to use fabric from the original quilt to rebind its fragment. These fragments are labeled, as that would be the only way of knowing that they are not original sized quilts.

Antique finished fragments are a wonderful way to purchase a doll or crib sized quilt with the same graphic impact at a fraction of the cost. Finished fragments can be displayed anywhere; on a table, wall, hallway, or in any room in your home. Finished fragments can be cotton, wool, or silk, including Crazy Quilt fragments. Our antique fragments date from the 18th century through the 1940’s.

F149 Stuffed Cherry Wreath
c. 1845
approx. 16 x 16
New York
$200 each

The two blocks pictured come from the same quilt. When this quilt was originally created, all of the wreaths were a solid overdyed green cotton, but not from the same bolt of fabric. Overdyed green fabric was made by dying the fabric blue and then dying it again with yellow, or vice versa. Over time, overdyed green will sometimes fade to the color of its first layer of dye. Therefore, one of the greens has lost its upper yellow dye layer and is now blue, and the other green is losing its upper blue dye layer and is leaning toward a yellow green. Interesting! All originally hand appliqued and hand quilted in outline, clamshell, feathers and flower motifs. The stuffed cherries have been restored with same date Turkey red cotton, and both fragments have been bound with the same Turkey red in a ¼ inch separately applied binding. We now have three blocks available; two with yellow green leaves and one with blue leaves. Please feel free to purchase any number of these wonderful fragments!

Believed to be from New England
$525

This fragment is comprised of an unbelievable array of wool challis and wool fabrics.  The 7” squares are all hand pieced and hand quilted.  The backing is a wonderful twig-like calico print and the binding is of red wool.  This piece had to have been made by an affluent family due the fact that wool challis fabrics were (and are) very expensive.
