Q8887 Nine Patch Irish Chain Crib Quilt

34 x 41 inches
New England

Turquoise is one of today’s designer colors. A simple and graphic piece of art with a solid color tourquoise will complement any decor. Bright and happy, this color was popular in the 1920’s, 1950’s and now again. This 4 inch 9 patch is comprised of 1-1/4” squares. Each turquoise and white block is joined by a solid white block of the same size. The border consists of an inner border of 1-1/2” in turquoise and an outer border of 2" in white. The outside edge of the border is 3/8 inch turquoise binding. The quilt is completely made up of only two fabrics. It is hand pieced and hand quilted, and the binding is hand applied. There are 3 different patterns of quilting on this piece. The outside border is cross-hatched, the 9 patch is a diagonal double line quilting and the white blocks are quilted with a two crossing ellipses. In pristine unused condition. This is an exact replica of an adult's quilt. A New England quilt organically hand washed by Betsey and ready for its new home.
