Elaborate Colorful Pine Cones Hand Pieced Patchwork Quilt
This stunning colorful and intricate hand pieced and hand quilted antique patchwork quilt is a beautiful example of the Pine Cones pattern. Bright yellow and chrome orange contrasted with green and white with centers with tiny prints in rust brown and off white make a great color combination. Backed with solid medium green which is also used as a 3” border on front. It measures 68” x 78”. Light weight batting. Hand quilted 6 stitches to one inch. I have carefully hand washed it and air dried it. Excellent condition. No holes, wear or repairs.
