F786 Ship's Wheel Finished Fragment

58-1/2 x 32-1/2 inches
New England

Created in chrome orange and over-dyed green, this graphic and stunning finished fragment from a Ship's Wheel quilt will make an amazing wall hanging. Chrome orange is a very hard to find color in a perfect antique quilt.
Dating from c.1855, in perfect condition, this quilt piece measures 58-1/2 x 32-1/2 inches, rather large for a fragment. The blocks measure 13" square and are joined with 4-3/4" sashing. The applied, restored binding is 1/4" and of the same date fabric.
Curved pieces are the hardest to work with when constructing a quilt top. The person must be very accomplished at both sewing and geometry. All work was executed by hand...both piecing and quilting. This quilt was created before the sewing machine was mass produced.
Organically hand washed by Betsey and ready to be sent, at no charge, for your in home approval.
