Q6937 Squares Quilt (possibly a four or nine patch)

70 x 70 inches

This quilt is comprised of 441 3-1/4 inch squares. Where there are only two fabrics we may assume these were purchased. One of the squares is a wonderful 1920s calico with blues, yellows, reds and browns. The other squares are a medium blue, or cornflower blue. It is completely hand pieced and hand quilted. Most of the blocks are outlined quilted. The entire quilt is quilted diagonally in both directions every two inches. The backing is an ecru color muslin and the binding is the backing turned over to the front and stitched by hand. In unused condition from Missouri, this cotton quilt has been professionally hand washed by Betsey and is ready for its new home.
