Stunning Antique Hand Stitched Calico Quilt
One of the nicest cotton quilts I have had in a long while, with literally hundreds of thin strips of calico hand stitched together and then hand quilted to a plaid backing. The quilt is a large coverlet size, it measures 88" long by 75" wide. Dating to the late eighteen or very early nineteen hundreds, I purchased this from a lady who inherited it from her grandmother, it has been in one family since it was made. The quilt is in good condition for the age, I found a couple of very small holes in the calico, but against the busy fabrics and complicated construction these are virtually invisible, there are also some scattered stains to the back. Nice large early quilt with masses of hand work in lovely fabrics, see photos as part of the description, these are getting very hard to find in anything like acceptable condition........
