19th century Irish Chain pattern patchwork quilt, 83" by 94". The fabric all seems to be cotton- the fabric on the back has a slightly courser weave than the front- more like homespun. The white is more ecru than white. The patterned fabrics are a brown background with indigo flowers and the other fabric is a red and white weave with flower springs- it reads as pink from a distance. There is a third patterned fabric used for some of the border with a red background with little brown "donuts" for lack of a better term.
Something in the dye of the brown donuts did not stand up well to time and when I opened the quilt, the donuts fell out like confetti. The batting is very thin and the quilting stitches and pattern are lovely. There are a couple of places where the stitches have come undone on the seam between pieces and they will need to be stitched up.
