This sweet, miniature Nine Patch cotton quilt captures the heart with 9 patch blocks a mere 2 3/4” square (that’s less than 1 inch for each small patch), and white on red polka dots for the joining blocks and outer border. The overdyed green inner border is 1 3/8 inches wide with the outer white on red polka dot border a lovely 4 1/2 inches wide. Such nice proportions, making this quilt both sweet and pleasing to the eye.

Entirely hand quilted with four strand cables in the borders, parallel lines in the 9 patch blocks and chevrons in the joining squares. The backing is a terrific medium scale olive-brown and white homewoven plaid. The 3/8 inch applied binding uses multiple fabrics from the top of the quilt – charming.

A wonderful antique quilt that has been used but lovingly cared for and in excellent condition. A wonderful quilt for a bed, a throw or to hang on the wall for a graphic statement. Professionally hand washed by Betsey and ready to ship to you on approval for review in your home before purchase.
