Q8224 Antique African American Bars Variation
approx. 78 x 86
Was $3,900 Now $2,900
This wonderful textile is representative of all we look for in an early to mid twentieth century African American quilt. The vertical piecing, asymmetry and bold, colorful fabrics with the use of intentionally random sized pieces are all traditional elements of African American quilt design and are in abundance in this lovely piece. Plaids, stripes, paisleys, florals and more dance among solid colored fabrics in this uplifting quilt. There are large gentle arcs as well as areas of straight lines of neat and functional quilting throughout.
This special quilt has seen some gentle use, but is in wonderful condition. The edges on two sides have been turned over from the back to the front, and pillowcase edged on the remaining two sides. The backing has been formed by piecing feed sacks.
This great find is now ready to display as art for your bed or wall. Professionally hand washed by Betsey and ready to send to you for viewing in your home on approval.
