This offering is for an antique Mid 19th Century Nine Patch Quilt. 75" by 81", it's entirely hand sewn and quilted and a fabric lovers dream. The pattern is a traditional nine patch with the blocks framed within beautiful green calico borders. The fabrics include tons of browns and greens and the condition is quite simply outstanding. I found one brown individual brown square that has a threadbare spot on one edge that looks like it may have been worn when it was pieced.
I found o other flaws. The backing is also in browns, two pieces and in spectacular undamaged condition.
The quilt is thin with an early thin combed cotton batting and it features very nice straight line quilting with app. 7 to 9 stitches per inch. Considering the age of the quilt there are remarkably few stains if any and the quilt is very clean. The quilt displays wonderfully with a bold graphic design that really pops and will be sure to please.
