Hello and thank you for looking. This store category (cutting quilts / Fragments) is specifically for quilted textiles that are wonderful either for restoration, reworking, unpicking or cutting projects only these textiles use some of the most wonderful fabrics , however they will all have condition problems which make them unsuitable to be used as is Please be sure to check the condition and description carefully to be certain that are right for you!This wonderful textile is an antique French pique from Provence that dates c1820 one side is the lovely faded medium weight cotton, Vichy check with rose pink tone! The backing dates c1820 and is all hand block printed fabric! VERY very very poor condition that side!! I think the best strategy with this quilt is to unpick as much as possible from the printed side and then re-back with another fabric. Or, ideal too for unpicking the Vichy check and the printed side!! This quilt is not washed and it is always best to unpick first and then clean the fabric after! Please use the zoom feature on the photographs to view condition closely as each side has condition flaws!! All condition of this piece is reflected in the price This textile is ideal for design reproduction as there are many pieces!
Also lovely for study, unpicking, and creative hands only!!! MEASUREMENTS : this textile measures approximately 77 inches by 79 inches. CONDITION This piece is in as found, not freshly laundered condition with storage dust. There are many holes, stains, marks ETC It is very important to view the photographs closely to see if the condition of this textile is right for you Lovely , but certainly not right for every application.
