I bought this c.1860-70 quilt made in Pennsylvania. The outer border is my favorite , poison green. Yummidy!
The backing is a wonderful brown and pink print.
A closeup of a block. These colors are typical of Pennsylvania quilts made in the mid to late 1800's.
I couldn't walk away from this oak set of card catalog files...the one added to the bottom of this stack. I'd never seen one with five drawers wide by one tall. It measures 33" wide x 6 3/4" tall x 17" deep. Now, what to store in those drawers. Hmm...
I didn't buy this at the flea market. I won it on an online auction and it arrived in the mail last Friday. It is a c. 1860's Economy Block doll quilt, made in Quincy, Massachusetts. It is so sweet and measures 15" by 15". There are a few brown prints that have deteriorated, but overall condition is pretty good.
Nice brown with red print backing and hand-quilted.
Randy ran my route tonight so I could have the evening off. I made a big pot of chili and spent the evening in my studio. Besides taking these photos and posting, I made a label for a great niece's baby quilt and stitched it on. I'm ready to ship it out now. She's due to arrive on November 24th. Thanks for stopping by.
