I am making progress on my disappearing four patch. Plaids! What can be better?
Oops! I see some misplaced blocks. I will have to be very careful with this one.
This quilt is a whole cloth quilt, hand embroidered.
It is yellowed and the top edge is frayed, from someone pulling the quilt up to their chin, I imagine.
See the fraying? It has some small bulges in the very thin batting, which I believe are cotton seeds. The quilting is absolutely amazing. The tiniest quilting stiches are throughout and the edge was turned to face and stitched together.
Any idea of the age or provenance?
Have a great day!
