Quilting: Fussy Quilting and Self Quilting - hand pieced and hand quilted

Material: chrome yellow indigo dyed printed cotton background 

Measurements: 72" x 90"


Heritage: This quilt was found in Alabama. This quilt is one of the most beautifully preserved quilts of this age I have ever seen. It is the sister quilt to the Wild Goose Chase quilt. The quilt features beautiful texties: overdyed green (indigo + chrome yellow), various copper browns, Garbaldi prints, mourning fabrics and an exquisite floral backing. Its truly a walk down textie history! The quilting is a strong utility quilting with self-quilting in the individual quilt blocks. The piece features a striking blue gingham background as well. The colors are all vibrant and sure.


Condition: Overall the piece is in excellent condition. It is strong, soft, and has minimal issues. The quilt has been expertly cared for. There are a few miscellaneous storage stains and some light crocking of the indigo. It would be a wonderful addition to any collection.
