AMAZING Vintage 1860's President's Wreath Applique Antique Quilt GREAT BORDERS! This MAGNIFICENT cotton 1860's (could be earlier) president's wreath quilt is hand appliqued and hand quilted, with seven narrow inner borders/frames surrounded by a dynamic outer serpentine vine border. It measures a generous 86" X 88" and is in very good condition, with the occasional light age spot (mostly on the back), one mend done by hand (on the back, see photo), and a few places in the green applique that show some subtle discoloration (visible in several photos). The quilt feels strong and sturdy overall. The quilting is SUPERB, with quilting around and within the applique and in elaborate heart, pinwheel, circular, leaf, and other designs in the background, all at an even 9-11 stitches to the inch.
The back and hand stitched binding are white, and the batting is thin. You can see cotton seed residue inside when you hold the quilt up to the light.
