This is a wonderful 1870s Quilt (I was told some fabrics are earlier when I added this to my collection). The quilt measures 34 x 35 and could be used as a wall hanging or for a crib. It is in sturdy condition and has seen little use. There is straight line grid quilting at 7-8 stitches to the inch.
The cotton batting is thin and seed residue can be seen when held to the light. The yellow fabric has polka dots as well. There are some seam openings on the small squares and some light tanning on the back. Awesome choice of fabrics and great antique condition for your collection.
