Q8700 Wool Mosaic
60 x 84 (152.4 x 213.4 cm)
A wonderful example of an early quilt pattern using wool and wool challis fabrics. This quilt is executed in a warm and vibrant color palette in shades of blue, brown, black and green with splashes of red and pink. Each of the hundreds of hexagons measure 1 7/8”. Central to each hexagon pattern is an embroidered three leaf clover.
Double borders, one in black and the other in deep olive black wool challis grace the outer edge of the quilt design. The backing is a beautiful black and deep fuchsia check. A very fine black wool challis is used for the applied 3/8” binding. Hand quilting is executed in dark thread in diagonal crosses and outline stitching enhancing the geometric design in this quilt. The creator of this piece had a wonderful sense of design which she employed using vibrant plaids placed strategically, adding interest and spark to her creation.
In unused condition, this quilt is a wonderful rendition of the 19th century mosaic pattern and a sophisticated example of antique textile art perfect for a bed or displayed as art on the wall. Remember, our quilts are always sent on approval.
