CON TC4 Amish Double Irish Chain c.1925
72 x 79 (189.9 x 200.7 cm)

This Amish Double Irish Chain is a beautifully made quilt with a graphic palette consisting of solid cottons in green and pink on black. Small blocks measure 1⅝ x 1⅝ inches. The double border is a lovely finish for the Irish Chain interior with the green border measuring 2¾ inches wide, the black a very nice 8 inches wide.

Fine hand quilting consists of diagonal cross hatching throughout the double Irish Chain pattern; sunflowers with diagonal cross hatch centers in the black joining blocks; delicate scrolling leaves and stem in the inner green border; and scrolling feather vines in the black border. The maker chose black quilting thread for the large black areas to keep the quilting pattern subtle next to the Irish Chain design. Please see the detail shot which shows the quilting from the back side. The backing is off white and the ⅜ inch applied binding is the same solid green cotton used in the interior.

This wonderfully graphic Amish quilt is in excellent condition and would be fabulous art for either bed or wall. Professionally hand washed by Betsey it is ready to ship to you on approval for private viewing. Ask Betsey for more details.
