F791a, F791b Finished Fragment
A. 44 x 27-1/2 inches
B. 29 x 26-1/2 inches
We have two wonderful, perfect condition School "fragments". I call them
fragments as they are the perfect sections of a non perfect quilt. Each
piece is bound with the same date fabric. Little quilts are so easy to
find a perfect place for in one's home.
All work has been executed by hand. The design of the quilting is an Arch..that lets me know that it was created in the south as this technique was not used in the Northern part of the U.S. The quilting rows are approximately 3/4" apart. The rich lavender color used for the Schoolhouses and the 3/8" binding was the rage in the 1880's. The wonderful medium / light blue fabric used in the rest of the quilt has a wonderful variation of a paisley design that I have never seen. Backing fabric is a lightly woven fabric close to what is called cheesecloth. This is a fabric used in farming and tells us more about the background of these pieces.
Organically hand washed and ready to be sent with free shipping for your approval.
