A hard to make mariners compass. I could only imagine what was going on in the makers mind while putting this design to cloth during an era that the country was divided and at war. Measures 95 x 94 inches. Hand quilted at 7 stitches per inch.
Fabrics are cheddar, green and a possibly turkey red print. The fabrics have faded with time so it was difficult to determine what that color was originally (red or rust). The binding is hand sewn.
The quilt has aged with time, has age/other spotting tanning that is scattered, some holes and bites. Not a perfect quilt, but certainly one that earns the attention for its History, type and era.
