Vintage 1870's Centennial PATRIOTIC Stars & Stripes Americana Antique Quilt! This UNUSUAL cotton 1870's centennial stars and stripes quilt is hand pieced and hand quilted, with wonderful printed blue and white star fabric PIECED together (sometimes primitively) on the front, with a treadle machine stitched red and white bars/stripes back. It measures 68" X 72" and is in good condition, with a couple of places where the maker repaired the fabric (see pics in the blue), a few nicks at the edges, and color loss in the red. Despite these imperfections, the quilt feels strong and sturdy overall. There is diamond quilting throughout at 7-8 stitches to the inch.

The hand stitched binding is rolled over from the front and the batting is thin. You can see cotton seed residue inside when you hold the quilt up to the light.

The VIBRANT BLUE and PATRIOTIC DESIGN make this vintage piece of AMERICANA stand out!
