Pattern Name: Hole in the Barn Door

Age: 1880s-1900

Quilting: fussy quilting on the edges and self-quiltling throughout - hand pieced and hand-quilted

Material: turkey red binding, brown chintz backing, chrome yellow, green, and turkey red calico pieces throughout

Measurements: 74x86


Heritage: This quilt was found in Indiana.  This is truly a fantastic example of early piece quilting.  There is a wide border, which would have saved time when you would have been trying to get a quilt done in time for a wedding or birth!  The quilt features turkey red printed calico, chrome yellow printed calico, and green printed calico.  It is a color WONDER!


Condition: Overall the piece is in good condition for its age.  The quilt itself is quite sturdy, but there is one small hole on the front binding where some of the batting has come undone.  The most significant area of wear is a spot of sun fade at the bottom right corner of the quilt.  Overall the quilt is still strong and would be a great piece to use or display.  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.
