Q8480 Nine Patch, Irish Chain, Snowball
76 x 80
This graphically wonderful quilt is a combination of three patterns creating a totally unusual piece of textile art. Exquisitely designed and pieced then beautifully hand quilted with small perfect stitches. This Pennsylvania quilt is in pristine unused condition. The raspberry solid pink fabrics, which I can best describe as "yummy".. .not very technical term... are used for the squares and triangles. The squares measure 2-1/2" x 2-1/2". The triangles measure 2-1/4 " x 1-1/2" x 1-1/2". By placing these patterns in a certain configuration, the creation is an optical illusion art piece. This is a totally rare and as far as I know, an original quilt pattern. This quilt has a 5-1/2 inch solid white border. The white backing is used to form a turned over binding then closed by hand. The design part of the body of the quilt is cross-hatched throughout while the snowballs are quilted in a Maltese-cross format. The border appears to be an original free flowing flower and vine design. The quilting stitches are small and even. As this quilt measures 76 x 80, it can be used for a single, double or queen size bed. Organically hand washed by Betsey and ready for your approval either as art for your wall or am amazing quilt for your bed.
