Q6059 Signature Block with Brick Border Quilt

c. 1865
84 x 84 inches

Simplicity in design using very sophisticated designed fabric. This totally unused quilt would perfectly fit a queen size bed with the signature design blocks covering the top of the bed and the brick pattern going over the sides and the foot of the bed.
Shades of rust along with black and white form the colors used for the main fabrics, both calicoes and paisleys. For fun we have the striped squares with the background of white and accented with a variety of unique stripes in red, blue and black. Many of these stripes I have never seen before. The binding is a solid black.
Hand quilting was done on the diagonal using black thread. In this case the quilting is secondary in importance to the fabrics and graphics.
In perfect, unused condition and organically washed. This quilt maybe sent to your home for your viewing.
