Pattern Name: Quadruple Irish Chain

Age: 1940s-1950s

Quilting: hand-quilted with a utility stitch; machine pieced

Material: printed VIBRANT orange cotton calico with various scrap calicos; amazing purple-dyed feed sack backing

Measurements: 76x76


Heritage: This quilt was found in Alabama. This quilt is a beautiful treasure trove of colors and feed and flour sack fabrics. It features an amazing quadruple Irish Chain pattern, and is thick and fluffy! The feed sack backing is PURPLE (so neat) and overall this is really a standout quilt.


Condition: Overall the piece is in great condition for its age. There are a few seam separations and a few spots of wear normal with the age of the piece. The piece is squishy and sturdy. It's really quite a solid workhorse of a quilt. The backing has a few small holes and an area of light fading where the piece was stored in the sun in reverse (a very smart move to protect the top from fading). Great care was taken to store and care for the quilt. With proper care, it will last many more years.
