Q9104 Signature Block Quilt
77 x 77 inches
This wonderful quilt is comprised of two fabrics...a vegetable dyed
calico and an off white.
The signature blocks, on point, measure apx 12” square and are then
joined with a 2” sashing from the same fabric. All work was completely
hand executed, as this was created before the sewing machine was
invented. The separate applied binding measures 1/4” in width and is the
same fabric as the sashing and the blocks. The backing is a home spun
linen indicative of the era. There are various quilting designs executed
on this quilt from outline quilting to straight line quilting to V
quilting. The colors may be hard to discern on any computer, which is
why I like to send all quilts out for approval. The colors are a gold on
yellow and a beige, black and white on chocolate calico. Mint condition.
This is a perfect size as art on the wall and will also fit a double
size bed. A quilt that can also be used as throw for a sofa or queen
bed. These two fabrics have created a sophisticated and graphic piece of
early New England art. Two early NE vegetable colors.
We always send for your approval...
