A totally unique folk art rendition of an earlier Broderie Perse style, this quilt has been arranged in block formation with 2 ¼ inch Turkey red sashing and border. Many nineteenth century fabrics have been cut out in various shapes and hand appliquéd with miniscule stitches. The diagonal line hand quilting is spaced approximately 1 inch apart. The border includes a 3/8 inch wide separately applied Turkey red binding and the backing is muslin. Professionally hand washed by Betsey; please ask her for more details.
