Q8761 Amish Wool Stumpwork Starflowers with Triple Border Quilt

1900-1915
65 x 70
Lancaster, Pennsylvania
SOLD

A fabulous opportunity to acquire a great piece of Amish folk art! In excellent condition, this quilt was constructed from approximately 6 x 6 inch blocks of wool. Bright, thickly tufted stumpwork starflowers are 4 1/2 inches across and made from assorted multicolored and variegated yarns. The quilt is surrounded by a triple border of red and black fine wools, and all seams have been herringbone embellished with variegated and solid yarns in a variety of colors.

This beautiful quilt has been hand quilted rather than tied, with herringbone stitching in the triple border, and large cross hatch stitching around the stumpwork starflowers. The binding is formed by the outermost red wool border fabric folding over to the back side and being hand stitched down. The backing is a lovely blue clover weave over olive brown wool.

A beautiful and very graphic piece of Amish folk art for your wall. Remember, all of our quilts are sent on approval.
