CONSN1 Nine Patch on Point
c.1890 (fabrics date back to c.1860)
74 x 88 inches
This extraordinarily vibrant and sophisticated Nine Patch on Point quilt has been pieced using the English method.. English piecing creates such a tight seam that the quilt top does not need to be quilted. In addition, the quilter has outline quilted each of the 1 1/2” squares comprising the Nine Patch blocks. The English piecing method has been used through out the quilt to join all the other fabulous turkey red calico , alternating joining blocks and the border. All of these pieces are the same Turkey Red calico print. The border measures a wide 7” and finished with a 3/8” turned over binding. The fabulous blue and pink backing fabric tells us that this has been quilted in the 1890’s even though the top has been previously made.....probably c.1875 with some earlier fabrics. This stunning quilt Measures apx 74 x 88, thus fitting a queen size bed or completely covering the top of a king size mattress. The creator of this quilt was a premier sewer .... Hand washed by us and ready to be sent for your approval.
