A gorgeous quilt with absolutely wonderful fabrics from 1850-1870, the color palette of this piece is predominantly browns, reds, madder dyes and a few pops of indigo. The wholecloth backing fabric is a lovely geometric print of brown ovals floating above a two toned green stripe. The bars alternate between a 7 1/4 inch brown and burgundy geometric stripe and oval print, and the 9 1/2 inch Nine Patch bars set on point. All hand pieced and quilted with undulating lines 3/4 of an inch apart. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.
