This is truly a special quilt. It is handsewn with very antique fabric pieces and the stitching goes though to the cotton backing. It is a Dresden Plate pattern with an exquisite scallop edge pattern. Each of the scallop pieces reflect a section of the Dresden Plate pattern. This is probably the most beautiful of the quilts we discovered in a trunk from West Virginia and my husband's Great Grand Parents. It probably dates very early 1900's. There are a couple areas that would need repair: one of the squares has a space at the edge (picture), a couple of the sections of plate pattern need to be re-stitched, and finally one small piece at the edge has a bit of wear where it appear it caught on a piece of a bed frame picture. On the backing side is a black mark that must have been made with a point of a fountain pen back in the day. I did not try to remove the stain, we figured it was part of the history. The size is pretty large: 72" x 86". We also have a star pattern listed from the same family collection.
