Pattern Name: Sunfower Sash
Quilting: Self Quilting and Utility Quilting - hand pieced and hand quilted
Material: indigo dyed green, chrome yellow, mourning black, off-white cotton with homespun stripe backing
Measurements: 64" x 70"
Heritage: This quilt was found in southern Alabama. This is truly an unusual and beautiful quilt. I have never seen such a bold combination of colors on this early quilt. The black with plant dyed green and chrome yellow are an exquisite combination! The homespun striped backing is also absolutely a genius design move - along with the sash piecing and rounded corners.
Condition: Overall the piece is in fair condition. Due to the fugitive dyes, this quilt is not a candidate to be washed. It should be cleaned by shaking the dust from it and hanging it in the sun (homespun side up) for a few days. To further protect the colors you could cover it with a clean sheet. Due to the caustic nature of the dyes several of the sunbursts are worn. There are storage stains. There are also a few small holes. Despite these condition issues the piece is quite strong and VERY soft. It would be a wonderful addition to any collection.
