This is a unique 19th century applique quilt. It appears that the red applique is hearts...perhaps a Pennsylvania Dutch Symbol. The quilt dates to the latter part of the 19th century. It features very finely done hand quilting. I believe this clearly shows in the photos.
The large applique pattern is repeated 4 times. It is surrounded by creamy white muslin and is very finely quilted. The hand quilting pattern is gracefully winding feather motif. There is a horizontal and vertical quilted pattern the meets in the center...it is done in a swirling pattern.
The quilt is almost square. It has rounded edges and very deep beautifully detailed borders. It has thin batting, and approx 9-10 stitches to the inch, which is very fine.
Our images tell the story best. Also, if you happened to know the name of this pattern, we are always learning, and would be happy to update the listing.
CONDITION: Very good vintage condition. There is a bit of fading on one of the large heart symbols. This is clearly shown in the photos. We are selling this as found. It is in lovely antique condition, but would brighten (the white area), if gently soaked. Any issues should come clean with no problems.
SIZE: 76" x 74"
