This classic Lemon Peel in the two color combination of indigo blue and white is just fabulous. It is comprised of three different indigo prints which are paired with black and white mourning prints. The blocks measure 5 1/2 inches square and are skillfully pieced to form the early and sought after Lemon Peel, also called Rob Peter to Pay Paul, pattern. Double borders measure 1 ¼ inches wide for the outer indigo border, and 1 3/4 inches wide for the inner black and white mourning print border. The addition of a four patch block in each corner of the quilt adds a special touch to the borders framing the inner design.

Hand quilting on this piece includes outline quilting for the body of the quilt and a single cable in the double border. The backing is white and the indigo outer border folds over to the back and is hand stitched down to form the ¼” binding.

This would be a wonderful addition to any quilt collection or a wonderful first quilt in excellent condition. We are happy to ship this quilt to you for viewing in your home on approval before a purchase decision is made.
