Q9009 Way of the World / Drunkard's Path with Double Border
66 x 80 (167.6 x 203.2 cm)
A wonderful, small scale pattern in indigo and white! This lovely antique quilt is comprised of two deep indigo fabrics; one featuring white polka dots, the other white mini stars, paired with white linen. Small blocks measure just 2 ¼ inches square. The inner stars on indigo border is 2 ½ inches wide, with the white outer border 3 inches wide.
Quilting on this beautiful piece is stitched by hand with finely executed echo outline for the blocks, ½ inch parallel lines for the inner border, with the outer border a combination of ½ inch parallel lines alternating with ½ inch cross hatch stitching - wonderful. The backing is white linen with an applied 3/8 inch binding in the same white stars on indigo cotton as the inner border.
This is a wonderful example of a popular pattern done exceptionally well from the precise piecing to the double borders and exquisite hand quilting. A must-have addition to a blue and white collection or a wonderful first piece and in excellent condition. Professionally hand washed by Betsey this quilt can be sent to you on approval for private viewing.
