WOW! Does it get any better!!? Antique handmade "ROMAN CROSS" quilt. Looks and feels like it was never used or washed~~fabric are pristine and crisp. You can still see some of the quilting trace lines.
The pattern is also considered "Album", Four Cross, Puzzle... Many names and variations. All cotton fabrics. Loads of shirtings and calico prints. Dates around 1900.
Nicely and neatly made! Hand pieced and hand quilted. Hand quilted at 8-9spi. Quilting is neat and tiny. Batting is very thin~so it displays beautifully! The pink binding measures about 1/4" wide. Backing is unbleached muslin.
Quilt measures 78" x 92".
Minty condition! Shows no use or wear. Fabrics are sturdy and strong. Binding has no damage. A couple corners are oh'so very slightly dingy on the edge. It is VERY Minor~and probably only happened from handling or folding over the years. No color fading.
I have not cleaned or treated this quilt. It feels very clean and not gritty or dusty.
No odors. No dry rot.
**This quilt will need to be signed for at the time of delivery!!
