Q8205 Miniature Signature Blocks Quilt

Double pink fabric: c.1880, finished: c.1930s
72 x 72 inches
Elizabethtown, PA

This Miniature Signature Block quilt is a puzzle to me. The double pink fabric is C.1880 while the off white muslin fabrics dates from the first half of the 20th century. The piecing is executed by machine while all quilting is done by hand. Each piece is outline quilted. In addition the double border measures 9". The inner most border is a brick pattern...bricks are apx. 1" X 2 " alternating off white with double pink. The outer off white border has chain quilting executed with nice small wonderful stitching. Unusual is the fact that the signature blocks are pieced on the diagonal.
This was a mint quilt and now called unused as it has been organically washed and is now ready to be sent for your approval.
