Pattern Name: 

Age: 1870s-1880s

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

Material: chrome yellow indigo dyed printed cotton background with multi-color cotton and cotton sateen fans

Measurements: 80"x88"


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 Diamond variation 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.  It features rounded corners, 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 fraying at the binding.  Some of the copper browns have signs of wear - but this is typical with fabrics of this age and due to the caustic dyestuffs that were used to make the fabrics.  There are some areas of fraying on the binding. Despite these minimal issues the quilt is soft and quite strong. It would be a wonderful addition to any collection.
