A boldly designed, beautifully made quilt top in red and white. This is an album style, appliqued quilt. There are hand embroidered initials on the appliques, all done in Turkey red. The red of both the floss and the cotton kept the original strong color. And the white is still white. Made of cottons, hand stitching of appliques with some machine stitching for the album "page" edges. A word about the hand stitching ~ it is meticulous. Tiny stitches evenly spaced. I counted 11 stitches per inch. A red border surrounds the quilt top. The back is plain white.
This top was unpicked from the early quilt, and is in very good condition with the following imperfections: two tears (pictured) and a couple little areas of little holes from age and normal use. All can be repaired. There are no stains, no discolor, no odors, no problems from prolonged storage. This is an eye-catching, worthwhile piece deserving a little attention ~ little attention will reap big benefits. 75" X 73 1/2". We have other pictures. Let us know if you'd like to see them.
