Antique Applique Pineapple Quilt c. 1850's completely hand appliqued and quilted also reverse appliqued..note the pineapple white segments.
86" x 92"
8 quilting stitches per inch per side, around all of the applique pieces and shadow quilted. This beautiful antique quilt has imaginative quilting, well worth it to zoom to see where the needle took the quilter(s)
Thin cotton batting, brown and off-white pin-stripe backing
1/4" binding brought from the front to the reverse and neatly hand-stitched in place The red is a very pretty cherry red shade...not turkey red...and is a little bit thin in a couple of places
a soak would be a benefit to brighten the off-white cotton.
Great condition with a tiny hard-to-find mend in the background 'white'
a lively designed antique beautiful quilt! With a very well-'executed' patch I just noticed...several days after listing it :-|
I see a dash of Matisse whimsy in these 'lively' looking pineapples...anyone agree?
