Q8914 Indigo Blue & White Antique Quilt - Touching Stars


c.1865
69 x 73 (175.3 x 185.4 cm)
$3,200

This Civil War era indigo blue and white cotton beauty was created by a skilled needlewoman with an eye for elegance. Graceful stars, each with eight elongated points, are framed by two borders; a 1 3/8 inch indigo blue with tiny dots and dashes, and a 1 1/8 inch solid white. A second indigo blue cotton, this one with tiny white dots each flanked by two even tinier dots, is used for the hand pieced stars.

Quilting on this beautiful piece is entirely by hand with finely executed double line medallions in the 5 1/2 inch white squares, 1/2 inch diagonal cross hatch in the center square of each star, parallel diagonal lines set 1/2 inch apart in the graceful points, and clamshell quilting in the double border. The backing is a very fine white cotton with an applied 3/8” binding in the same indigo and white cotton used for the inner border.

A beautifully executed indigo and white quilt, from the careful piecing to the double borders and exquisite hand quilting. A gorgeous addition to a blue and white collection and in excellent condition. Professionally hand washed by Betsey. Ask to see this quilt on approval in the privacy of your home.
