This is a quilt that we love for its graphics. It is entirely pieced and quilted by hand. It has a 1/4 inch tape binding and a 6-1/4 inch turkey red outer border with arch quilting. . The inner border has wave quilting. The diamonds making up the tumbling blocks have apx 2-3/4 inch sides and almost primitive straight line quilting through them. The backing is pre-1860s or earlier solid turkey red fabric. The diamonds in the tumbling blocks are purple red white. The border is blue red. Amazing graphic quilt for your wall. Clean and ready to use. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.
