1860-80’s FEMININE MOSAIC BLOCK OR JACK IN THE PULPIT ANTIQUE VINTAGE QUILT – REALLY SWEET QUILT!
This is a handmade quilt with loads of feminine charm constructed in the MOSAIC BLOCK or JACK IN THE PULPIT pattern – #2470 BB.
I purchased this quilt in 2001 from New York: USA….it measures 66″ x 81.5”.
There are 42 x hand pieced Mosaic blocks each measuring 6” x 6”….set in 6 x 7 rows.
The maker used 2” wide sashing strips in a buff brown striped print to join her blocks together, surrounding her quilt on three sides with double borders of cinnamon pink & buff brown and then using a wider triple border across the top of the quilt.
A pink & brown colour scheme dominates this quilt….within the blocks the maker has used a wide variety of chocolates, taupes, cooler browns, double pinks, cheddar and green set against a background of plain cream muslin.
The backing is hand pieced from two narrow widths of the same cream muslin then with a thin cotton batting in between.
The maker has hand quilted her quilt in a chevron pattern.
There are a few minor condition issues with this quilt….but what a great restoration prospect for those looking!
Two of the brown calicos used within the quilt have broken down and need replacing in 4 blocks….I can also see in a few places where somebody has already completed restoration work using era appropriate fabric.
Overall this is a clean, fresh and soft quilt….there are some minor stains visible here and there but nothing too dramatic – all of which should come out with a gentle soak.
The backing fabric is strong and in great condition: the quilting stitches are strong and there are no odours evident!
