This striking quilt is a late 19th century one, dating from between 1865 and 1890. The fabrics are all 100% cotton. It is a summer-weight quilt with a thin layer of batting, just enough to give texture to the quilting. Two fabrics were used: crisp navy and white calico, and vivid chrome yellow cotton. The backing is unbleached muslin. This quilt is partially hand-pieced (the long seams were done on the machine) and entirely hand-quilted at 9-10 stitches per inch. The binding was machine-stitched. The quilt is clean. It is washable in cold water and may be dried in the dryer on a cool setting. The bow tie design in the two contrasting colors is quite graphic. The quilt measures 72" X 74" and will fit a twin sized bed. It is shown over a full; it could have been used over a wooden rope bed during the late nineteenth century. The quilt is in excellent original condition with no issues. It was part of a collection put together during the 1980's and 1990's here in the Chicago area. It would have originated in the North-Eastern portion of the United States.
