1920's Double Sided Patchwork 11259

£ 425.00

1 item in stock

Not long ago there were many of these wonderful Welsh patchworks in circulation but now its quite rare to find one for sale

Whoever made this quilt  had access to fabric samples but at the same time they were not an elite seamstress as the compliation and execution is most unsophisticated. Both sides have a simple diamond in a square  centre , one side with a prominence of red whilst the other displays lots of small prints ( samples) Put together they are simple but charming .

All hand quilted with a naive stitch ( hatching and chevrons in a darker stitch ), the batting most probably a rough sheet or fine blanket.

In excellent order - and imperfectiona are as it was made .
