Q6482 Variation of Sherman's March with Flying Geese Bassinet Quilt
34 x 40 (86.4 x 101.6 cm)
This wonderful piece of art with high graphic appeal draws your eye despite its diminutive size. It is in excellent condition and is comprised of twelve 5 ¾ inch pieced blocks each with a 1 ¼ inch double pink center square surrounded by radiating solid white bars and four indigo blue and white patterned triangles. The bright, 5 ¾ inch orange joining blocks pop out at the viewer and the 3 ½ inch flying geese border adds constant movement to this mini masterpiece. Hand quilting was used throughout with 1 inch cross hatch in the joining blocks, outlining and cross hatch in the pieced blocks and parallel lines in the border.
The varied white on indigo blue fabric patterns add yet another dimension to this quilt. The quilt maker used one patterned fabric within each pieced block but chose to alternate the patterns used in the blocks in the flying geese border which include: moons, stars, daisy-like flowers, fans with swirls, flowers with rings and clover. The separately applied ½ inch binding is in a tiny chambray blue dot on white. Professionally hand washed by Betsey and ready to send to you on approval for private viewing in your home.
