Coming directly from the family, including an actual photo of the
maker...all information released upon purchase.
This captivating Flag quilt was created in 1918 and auctioned in order to raise money for the war effort. Black Stocking religion was practiced by this family and meetings were held in their basement. The husband of the maker purchased this quilt in order to keep it in the family. Now this quilt is available to be purchased as a spectacular addition to one's collection of patriotic American memorabilia or for the discerning quilt collector...An amazing addition to the art displayed on one's wall.
The 5" folky Stars are hand appliqued onto the patriotic blue background. Each point is then tied with a hand executed cotton knot. The red and white stripes are 5" in width and are machine pieced as are the pillowcased four edges. The backing fabric is muslin.
This quilt was lightly used and then packed away for over 100 years. There are a few spots that I see, but they do not detract from this incredible piece of Americana.
