Heritage: This quilt was found in Alabama.  It is an exquisite example of a high quality, sturdy cotton workhorse quilt.  The quilt features beautiful blue, red, and white calicos and shirting fabrics in a bold pattern with indigo sash and block. There are beautiful original mends and a lovely homespun backing. The quilt also has one small hole on the surface where the cotton batting shows through.  This is a fine example of early turn-of-the-century home quilting. It is truly a unique and historical piece. 
Condition: Overall the piece is in excellent condition.  It is so very soft and the colors vibrant and sure.  There are a few stray dark spots here and there but nothing overly noticeable.  There are some signs of wear characteristic with the textile's age, but overall a truly lovely and exquisite piece.
