Stunning Pennsylvania Hand Stitched Basket Quilt
Absolutely stunning hand stitched basket quilt, of red calico on white feed-sack, with masses of very intricate hand quilting. The quilt came from the estate of a Pennsylvania family, who had a collection of some of the finest vintage quilts I have seen for some years, see my other listings for more from the same estate. The quilt is relatively thin with cotton batting, it is in good estate order with no damage that I could find, though it has been stored for some years and has scattered storage staining which should clean (I would carefully hand wash, but this will have to wait for spring weather). The quilt measures approx 76" square, the front has one small area which shows the remains of the feed-sack print very faintly, the back is in a satinized cotton, which I have also photographed so you can see the complex patterns of the quilting. This is a really beautiful quilt, sturdy, ornate and in a classic pattern. The light here was terrible on the day, and did not do the quilt full justice, it is far lovelier than the photos suggest.
