Blocks measuring 6- 1/4" x 6-1/2" inches contain 1/2" to 5/8" inch wide logs.Turkey red chimneys measure 1 3/4 inches square. Quilt measures 79" x 77". The condition is good, no shredding, no repairs, as found, there are several bites in a few blocks at its edge as shown in last photos. I photographed the damage from the front then the back.
There are only two places of damage at edge. Hard to see if there is staining, few small spots on back. This quilt is strong and sturdy. The damaged logs at edge would be a easy fix.
The quilt is totally hand pieced and hand stitched with fabrics from the 1900's. The back is a brown checked calico and the batting is thin. I have not washed this quilt, in as found condition.
This quilt would make a great visual wall hanging. ANTIQUE & VINTAGE QUILTS : ANTIQUE & VINTAGE QUILTS. We are happy to answer any questions about this item. The items I sell are antique or vintage textiles.
