Q9201 Martha Washington
80 x 80 inches
Believed to be from New York

The Martha Washington pattern was developed from the Ocean Wave pattern with the center joining square divided into four triangles. The edging is most unusual and is created using a border print which is indicative of the first half of the 19th century. However the style of border prints did return during the 1870's. Did someone take the border strip from an earlier fabric and apply it on this one as I believe may have happened. This border fabric actually pre-dates the other Indigo dyed calico fabric used in the construction of this very graphic quilt. The design construction is comprised of 13” blocks on point with the four sides of this quilt filled in with triangles each measuring 7 x 7 x 10”, one white and one Indigo Calico between each square. Two sides of the quilt have a 3” border fabric edged with a 3/8” hand applied binding. In the quilt world, indigo and white is and has been the most loved color combination in America. Organically hand washed and ready to be sent on your approval.
