Very Striking & Colorful Antique New England Floral (TULIP) Appliqued Quilt, Perfect for Project Work & Craft Items. DESCRIPTION: This is a very bright, very colorful, early antique hand appliqued quilt. Applique work is totally complete. Maker finished quilting 1 of the 4 large blocks, while the other three are only partially done. NICE, WELL-CHOSEN COLORS & DESIGN, AND EXTREMELY STRIKING APPEARANCE, with nice matching of the colors.
Hand quilting that is there is incredibly tight, and I counted 11 rows of quilting to the inch!!! Impossible to count the number of tiny stitches per inch.
It appears that the maker may have been too ambitious with this tiny background quilting, so much so that she was not able to finish it! Still has original old batting. Condition is as found, in overall good condition.Some light age stains present, which may come out with laundering. I have not laundered this and always prefer to keep my quilts just as they come from the old estates. This could be finished or would be perfect for a variety of antique cut-up purposes such as making a vintage pocket book, jacket, table runner, small wall hanging, or a variety of other creative ideas or craft projects.
