AMAZING Vintage 1870's Turkey Red & White Baskets Sawtooth Zigzag Antique Quilt! This DAZZLING cotton 1870's (could be earlier) turkey red and white quilt is hand pieced and hand quilted, with a very unusual design involving part of the cake stand/fruit basket pattern (with no "base") repeated in an unusual configuration. The quilt measures 82" X 84" and is in excellent condition, with the occasional small, faint age spot and no wear. There is quilting around the piecework throughout at 7 stitches to the inch.
The back is white, the hand stitched binding is solid red, and the batting is thin. Two slightly different solid turkey reds were used in places, and there is a velcro strip added to the back along one edge, making this suitable to use a wall hanging. The AMAZING DESIGN, SMALL PIECES, and CLASSIC RED make this 19th century COLLECTOR'S QUILT stand out!The item "AMAZING Vintage 1870's Turkey Red & White Baskets Sawtooth Zigzag Antique Quilt" is in sale since Thursday, July 21, 2016.
