1880-1910 GRAPHIC SCRAPPY PINWHEEL / HOUR GLASS ANTIQUE VINTAGE QUILT TOP IN EXCELLENT CONDITION
Charming very graphic, hand pieced, scrappy PINWHEEL, BOW TIE, PORK AND BEANS or HOUR GLASS pattern – #1195a BB Antique Vintage Quilt Top.
This quilt top was purchased during 2005 from Florida: USA and measures 74” x 82”.
There are 324 blocks each measuring 4” x 4” arranged in 18 x 18 rows….the blocks have been hand pieced using a lovely array of florals, chocolate browns, mourning greys, cadet blues and claret reds offset against many different shirting prints….(oh that sweet jockey cap & horseshoe print!)
The maker then surrounded her top on three sides with a plaid border.
You can see that this top originally belonged to a little used tied comforter by the tiny holes left from the ties as well as some batting residue visible on the underside.
Overall this quilt top is in excellent condition for age….the seams and fabrics are strong and I didn’t note any major damage, significant holes, stains or odours.
There are some very minor storage stains which should be easily removed when the quilt is finished.
With very little effort this could be finished into a serviceable quilt, placed on display as-is….or the blocks/fabrics salvaged and used for another project.
If you have any questions re this quilt top then please message me and I will do my best to answer them.
Remember this item is over 100 years old and is not in perfect condition….please see all photos and read the description to avoid disappointment.
This comes from a non-smoking household with no pets coming into contact with the quilts.
I am very happy to combine shipping to save you on postage.
I will take returns for any reason so please message me if you have any issues or problems with your order.
