Q8333 Double Irish Chain with Inner Streak of Lightning Border
What a stunningly graphic quilt! This hand pieced, hand quilted creation contains fabrics dating from 1815 to 1865. It gives the impression of a double border, with the use of the wide, overdyed green calico binding followed by a section heavily quilted in a wave pattern and finished with a matching overdyed green calico inner Streak of Lightning. The Double Irish Chain interior is quilted in outlines and crosshatching. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.
