Q8205 Miniature Signature Blocks Quilt
Double pink fabric: c.1880, finished: c.1930s
72 x 72 inches
This Miniature Signature Block quilt is a puzzle to me. The double pink
fabric is C.1880 while the off white muslin fabrics dates from the first
half of the 20th century. The piecing is executed by machine while all
quilting is done by hand. Each piece is outline quilted. In addition the
double border measures 9". The inner most border is a brick
pattern...bricks are apx. 1" X 2 " alternating off white with double
pink. The outer off white border has chain quilting executed with nice
small wonderful stitching. Unusual is the fact that the signature
blocks are pieced on the diagonal.
This was a mint quilt and now called unused as it has been organically washed and is now ready to be sent for your approval.
