Q8471 Amish Bowtie Quilt

New Wilmington, Pennsylvania (western part of the state)
Was $2,400 Now $1,500

This unused Amish Bowtie is in perfect condition. Each 10 inch block contains four bowties in either red, blue, pink, or navy. Solid black fabrics with various finishes were used as the background in each block, and provide touches of subtle shine. The blocks have been triple line quilted by hand, and the blue joining blocks have been hand quilted with a 1 inch diamond crosshatching. Large yellow and blue triangles filled with double arc quilting form an inner border, and quilted flower petals line the 2 ½ inch golden yellow outer border. A 3/8 inch blue binding has been turned over from the wholecloth backing and machine topstitched. These fabrics are the same as used for sewing their clothing. This is a perfect quilt to use on a bed or as wall art. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.
