AMAZING, Large VERY EARLY PRE-1830 Indigo & White Flying Geese Antique Quilt
AMAZING, Large VERY EARLY PRE-1830 Indigo & White Flying Geese Antique Quilt! This DAZZLING cotton flying geese quilt is hand pieced and hand quilted, dating back to the pre-1830 era. It measures 98" X 104" and is in good condition, with light surface dirt in places, mellowing of the indigo blue, and some fabric deterioration near the top, mostly in the center (photos show the worst). There are straight line designs quilted throughout at 7 stitches to the inch. The back is a linen/white fabric, the front and back are stitched together at the edge ("knife edge"), and the batting is thin. You can see cotton seed residue inside when you hold the quilt up to the light, and there are 23 cutouts in the two bottom corners -- this one was made for a poster bed. The GORGEOUS EARLY INDIGO FABRICS and GREAT DESIGN make this MUSEUM QUALITY COLLECTOR'S QUILT stand out!
