CONCA4 Linsey Homespun Lemon Peel Quilt

65 x 78 inches

An unused Turkey Red and White "Martha Washington" quilt is indeed a treasure. Red and white quilts are the second most popular quilt color in the USA. Fabric of that era was made to last through many years of use. Therefore the new owner of this unused antique quilt will have many years of use and enjoyment.

The "Martha Washington" pattern is actually the "Flying Geese" pattern with the center square split into two triangles. Perfectly executed by hand, this quilt would be an amazingly graphic centerpiece either for your wall or your bed.

The pattern consists of 13" squares with the small triangles measuring 1-3/4" X 1-3/4" x 2-1/2". The inner split triangles measure 5-1/2" X 5-1/2 "X 8 ". All inner piecing and quilting is executed by hand, while the 1/4" separately applied binding was attached by treadle machine. Women would never brag and this was the quilter's way of saying that she possessed the new invention..the sewing machine. The center triangles are quilted in a 1/2" grid, while the small triangles are quilted in a straight line pattern. The small quilting stitches are perfectly executed.

This unused condition antique quilt is now organically hand washed and ready to be sent, with free shipping.
