The outside border is 7-1/2" in width finished with a 1/4" separately applied binding in white. The border is comprised of three sections, outside designs in Turkey Red joined by a wide White strip. The entire border is quilted in a cross hatch grid with rows 5/8" apart. The bear Paws are quilted in a straight line grid crosshatched 5/8" apart. The white areas have exceptional quilting of medallions with all areas in the white filled with quilting.
This quilt comes from the family with a wonderful story. It seems that the owners great-great Grandfather was a Doctor. In treating a member of the family he spilled some medicine on the quilt, removing color. In later years a family member painted over these pieces! Luckily the painted pieces were in a straight line on one side if the quilt. We have removed that row, reattaching the border. In reality this makes the quilt a fragment, in a perfect size for an amazingly graphic major piece of wall art!
