Chester County, PA

This delightful red and white quilt has been beautifully executed and is comprised of 1” postage stamp size squares. This quilt is both hand pieced and machine pieced and finished with only hand quilting in very small stitches. The mini 9 patch blocks are 3” square made up of 9 1" squares. The extended 9 patch, comprised of 9 of the smaller blocks, is a 9” square. The wide border measures 12-1/2” in width which includes a 1/4” machine applied binding. Each postage stamp has double edged quilting, one on the inside and one on the outside of the outer edge. The outer exceptionally wide border has 2 separate rows of chain quilting. One row of chains measures 4-1/4” in width while the other measures 7-1/2” in width. This sweet quilt appears to be in totally unused condition. Organically hand washed by Betsey and ready to be sent on approval.
