UF114 Linsey Woolsey Quilt Piece
18th Century
12 x 12 (30.5 x 30.5 cm)

A wonderful 12 x 12 inch sample from a walnut dyed 18th century Linsey Woolsey quilt. Perfect for use as a study piece it is a beautiful rich walnut brown with a homespun wool back. One side is pillowcase edged to the homespun back with a double line of hand top stitched lines. Note the weave repair near the edge using wool thread that we assume was done a very long time ago as that is the traditional way a wool quilt would have been mended. See detail images.
