Pattern Name: 9 Patch Variation

Age: 1870s-1890s

Quilting:  utility quilting throughout the blocks and around the border; fussy quilting in a feathered pattern in the relief

Material:  indigo and chrome orange dyed calico and white calico

Measurements:  90x90


Heritage: This quilt was found in Ohio.  This is truly a remarkable piece of quilting history!  THIS IS A HUGE quilt and filled with wonderful quilting.  First, the calico is indigo and chrome orange roller printed calico (one color was printed on rollers with a wax resist to leave the print white, then the next added - likely the orange came second).  There are THREE LEAF CLOVERS here.  The binding on the quilt is THE SMALLEST binding I have ever come across.  There is utility quilting throughout the piece and fussy feathered quilting in the relief featuring a puckered stitch and double-line stitching. Nine stitches per inch. This is really a magnificent collector's piece.


Condition: Overall the piece is in excellent condition for its age. The quilt itself is quite sturdy, but there is one small hole on the front.  The binding is worn in some places, but still in tact.  There are a few small storage stains, but nothing major.  This quilt has been very carefully preserved and cared for throughout the years.  Overall the quilt is still strong and would be a great piece to use or display.


NOTE:  This would not be a quilt to wash, but to leave outside in the sun (under a clean white sheet) for a few warm, sunny days. This is the traditional cleaning method for these types of quilts and would be appropriate here.
