Pattern Name: Triple Irish Chain

Age: 1880s-1900s

Quilting: hand pieced and hand quilted using fussy quilting and utility quilting

Material: BEAUTIFUL turkey red and beige feed sacks

Measurements: 94x72


Heritage: This quilt was found in Virginia and presents beautifully.  It is a classically beautiful example of the early red and white quilts that were all the rage in the latter part of the 19th century.  There is no batting in the quilt - it is a simple single layer.  The piecing is excellent and the tiny stitching throughout is quite beautiful.  The quilt presents beautifully and would be an excellent piece to display.   


Condition: Overall there are some issues with the quilt - hence the easy price point for something so unique.  First, there is quite a bit of rubbing of the turkey red and the back there are definite signs of color-bleed.  The quilt appears to have been worked on and there is the faint scent of a bleach-based cleaner.  Unfortunately, due to the color bleed, this would NOT be a quilt that could be washed.  I recommend leaving the quilt outside upside down in the sun for several days.  This will certainly help with some of the color bleed on the back.  Overall - the piece is amazing and definitely a wonderful quilt to display.
