Q9034 Indigo Blue & White Folk Art Applique
79 x 99 (200.7 x 251.5 cm)
An original design in a gorgeous indigo dyed blue for this wonderful and very early folk art quilt. The same white dots on indigo cotton is used throughout paired with white linen. Applique blocks measure 19 inches square with a 9 ¾ inch wide border. Appliques are finely cut and are of the maker's own design.
Applique and hand quilting stitches are miniscule and precise with echo outline stitching around the appliques as well as cross hatch stitching. The backing is white linen and the 1/2 inch applied binding also white linen. In excellent condition RMQ did some restoration work near the binding using same date white linen.
A stellar example of folk art quilting in fabulous indigo blue and white! Professionally hand washed by Betsey this exceptional quilt can be sent to you on approval for private review.
