(39) x 1880-1910 Sweet Double Pink Churn Dash Quilt Blocks – 9″ x 9″ – Plus 19 x Additional Half Blocks!
This is a really sweet set of pink & white 1880-1910 CHURN DASH or PICTURE FRAME antique quilt blocks – BB #2116.
I purchased these blocks during 2005 from Pepperell, Massachusetts: USA.
There are 39 x neatly hand pieced quilt blocks along with the relevant side setting half blocks and two of the corner quarter setting blocks. The full size blocks measure 9” x 9”.
The maker used just two fabrics for her project: the charming double pink fabric set against a cream calico background.
When I purchased this item it was the quilt front and backing only whereby the previous owner had removed the batting and looks to have pulled thru the ties that would have held the comforter together….what a shame!
This has resulted in holes to one corner triangle in most blocks….these patches will need to be replaced.
I have shown an example of the worst hole in one of my photos….many of them are smaller than that.
The seams are neat and tight with the fabrics in good condition on the whole except for those tie holes as mentioned above.
The blocks are clean with some discolouration to the outer edge blocks….no odours noted.
If I were to keep these I would use the outer half blocks to repair the full blocks and then use a plain setting block in between….alternatively you could elect to make a smaller quilt.
What a sweet, feminine pink and white quilt for a little girl!
