Q8848 Old Order Antique Amish Center Square Crib Quilt
c.1920 top
26 x 32
Big Valley, Mifflin County, PA
Was $1,200 Now $900

This Nebraska Amish crib quilt in the center square pattern is in unused condition. While the top is c.1920 Betsey believes that backing and quilting were done c.1950, however the quilting thread is early (using non-mercerized cotton thread for the quilting). Hand quilting in dark thread consists of the traditional Nebraska Amish motifs of fans in the center square, half chains in the outer border and double line parallel lines in the inner blue border making up a zigzag design. A solid blue 3/8” wide applied binding finishes the crib quilt beautifully.

A wonderful diminutive piece that has been hand washed by Betsey and is ready to be sent to you on approval for viewing in the privacy of your home.
