GORGEOUS Vintage 1880's Carolina Lily Antique Quilt AMAZING HAND QUILTING! This BEAUTIFUL cotton 1880's Carolina lily quilt is hand pieced, hand appliqued and hand quilted, with a classic cinnamon pink/double pink inner frame. It measures 68" X 82" and is in very good condition, with a couple of small age spots, very subtle color loss in the fabrics in a few places, and no wear.
The quilt feels strong and sturdy overall. The quilting is superb, with quilting around the piecework and applique and in elaborate floral/rosette, and swag designs in the background, all at an even 8-9 stitches to the inch. The back is white, the hand stitched binding is the same double pink used in the interior, and the batting is thin.You can see cotton seed residue inside when you hold the quilt up to the light. The photos just don't do justice to this WELL QUILTED 19th century CLASSIC -- it's much nicer in real life!
