Q9060 Trapunto Bridal Quilt with Grapes and Leaves

c. 1880 or earlier
67 x 76 inches
New England

This quilt is created from blocks measuring 8" x 8". The pattern is that of a cluster of grapes on the vine. The blocks were pieced together and outlined with cording. If you are a lover of wine, this is the quilt for you. The backing is finished in the English style where a non-quilted whole cloth fabric covers the back. I found this quilt in New England, and restored the binding. The quilt was originally made for a poster bed but has been restored to fit a regular bed. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.
