Q9262 Woolen Diamond In A Square with Folk Art Applique

62 x 72 inches
Western Massachusetts

Everyone has favorites..This is one of mine! The quilt design is a Diamond in a Square, created from lush woolen homespun as well as purchased woolen fabrics. Some of these fabrics are from the 1860's era. All fabrics colors are rich in tone. Sending this quilt to an entire higher level is the center medallion miniature appliques.

The backing is a gray cotton flannel. The binding is a fine gray wool. Each square measures 7-1/2" with the diamonds having sides that measure 5". We have early vegetable dyed black woolens as well as home dyed dark Khaki color woolens. The diamonds are an array of warm tone colors. Centers of each block have perfectly hand appliqued six leaf flowers with red centers. The flowers are around 2-1/8" in diameter with the red center being 3/8". The binding only measures 1/4" and is separately applied and hand stitched closed. Cross hatch quilting in a 2-1/2" grid ,executed in black thread, covers the entire quilt.

The quilt appears not to have been used and is now waiting for its new owner. A perfect size for a wonderful piece of quilted wall art. Please ask to see this quilt in your home. Our shipping is free of charge in the continental US. Out of this country there will be an extra fee.
