This truly amazing early linsey woolsey quilt has been vegetable dyed in a burgundy wine color not found in the northeast US. The berries used to dye this quilt are indigenous to the south. Quilted with homespun thread in a herringbone pattern, this early quilt would have served a wonderful purpose keeping people warm in winter. The creation of this quilt from start to finish could possibly have taken 2 years. Complete original condition and ready to use.
