F138 Linsey Woolsey Fragment with Star Center
23 x 24
A gorgeous very early homespun fragment from an original much larger quilt. This c.1800-1820 piece is a treasure showcasing homespun wool both front and back (see detail image) with wonderful hand quilting using both green and brown linen thread. The stars are outline and parallel line quilted, with both scroll work and outline quilting in the larger mustard blocks.
Graphically wonderful, this fragment would make a beautiful wall hanging. Ask us about adding sleeves to the back for hanging. Pillowcase edged in an invisible stitch using linen thread.
