Offered here is a sweet hand stitched quilt, handmade by a mother for her young son. The quilt is embroidered with what I have to believe is an outline of the little boy’s hands with the initials FES and FROM MOTHER TO SON. The fabrics: some are seersucker (a better quality than you might find today), the dark blue is similar to a fine pinwale cord (lightweight) and other fabrics I’m sure she had around. They are youthful, keeping to a red, white and blue theme, but she has incorporated some other colorful florals, stripes, checks and paisleys. The stitching (interlocking circles) have been cleverly designed to form what look like basketballs and footballs. The quilting has been done on white with a turquoise blue flowered calico backing. It’s really neat. The quilt measures 68 ½ inches by 76 ½ inches. It’s very nicely constructed with wonderful hand embroidered stitching over seams (all stitching appears to be in tack with no breaks). The quilt, although baring some stains and a few worn areas (please see photos), it is in clean, age-related, usable condition. Most importantly it has no odors. When I located this quilt in Virginia, a hand-typed Index Card-Tag with info about the quilt, ownership name and address as written on card: north end of Weyers Cave was pinned to it. (Weyers Cave is in Augusta County, Virginia and part of the Staunton-Waynesboro area.) The person’s name indicated on the card is the quilter. Tag will be included upon purchase. Tag also has a handwritten date of 11/14/92, so I can’t say for sure if it is 1892 or 1992 or it may not relate to the age of the quilt at all. I just don’t know, but judging by the fabrics I likely go with late 1800s early 1900s. Sales tax for all states that require it must be added and is calculated on purchase price including shipping and handling.
