CONJE48 Pinwheels with Chintz Border Quilt
82 x 96 inches
Ohio or New York
This very early spetacular Pinwheel Quilt comes from either New York or
Ohio. Originally this quilt would have been made for an early high bed
that was only 52" wide. The size now will fit our queen or king size beds.
Created from 7" blocks, each one alternating a pieced calico Pinwheel block with a solid off white linen block. The outside border is a 12" strip of an early hand painted copper plate print. Absolutely georgeous! The binding is 1/8", turned over from the back. The back of the quilt and the front white are both linen, indicative of the time it was created. Without checking, we know this quilt was created completely by hand, as it was made prior to the sewing machine being in the public's use. All colors are vegetable dyed.
The border is quilted in a triple line herringbone pattern. The pieced blocks are quilted in a cross hatch pattern. The white block is quilted in an eight leaf design with the corner of each block joined with a minuscule 20" square quilted design.
The chintz is now showing some splits along the binding which can happen with an early chintz quilt. This quilt is perfect for a collector or an individual who wants to display it on a bed that is rarely used, hang it on a wall where it is safe. The hand painted Chintz is outstanding.
