Q8748 Nine Patch on Point with Orange Border
86 x 96 (218.4 x 243.8 cm)
This is a stunning early quilt beautifully executed using fabrics from the late 1700's up to c.1840. The pattern is Nine Patch set on point with lovely 2 inch sashing separating the 9 patch blocks. The seven inch wide border is a gorgeous orange and ecru stripe with a small brown print. The same fabric is used sparingly in the interior of the quilt which sets off the spectacular border beautifully.
Completely hand pieced with hand quilting executed in parallel lines and herringbone stitching using linen thread. The backing is linen and the 5/16 inch applied binding is constructed using multiple fabrics from the interior of the quilt - lovely. The initials 'LPH' are stitched onto the linen backing. This quilt contains a plethora of beautiful early fabrics in an elegant palette. The flash of orange was a brilliant artistic choice by the maker and makes for a sophisticated work of art. Professionally hand washed by Betsey, ask her for more details and to have this quilt shipped to you on approval for private viewing.
