Beautiful Old Amish Quilt Large 67" X 74" Hand Stitched
- Source: eBay
An amazing old traditinal pattern Amish quilt about double bed size measuring 67" x 74". The entire piece is hand stitched with approximately 2,000 individual cloth squares sewn in the top of it at about 9 stitches to the inch with hand applied binding. If you count just the flower patterns they are made up of over 1,700 of these lttle squares, truly a work of fine American folk art. The back is one piece of white cloth with hand stitching across the fabric. We purchased this 18 years ago from a gentleman whose mother aquired it in the 1920's. The condition is overall excellent with minor wear. The workmanship on this really amazing. A quilt like this would take even longer to make than the other one I have listed which would also have been labor intensive. Fourteen day return privilege. Check or money order O.K., buyer pays postage.
