Another Antique Quilt on Ebay

I just added another antique quilt to my eBay store… it will be visible at 8:00 Eastern time today, March 2, 2008. This quilt was made in the 1930’s, and has absolutely stunning hand quilting. The quilt has been in my posession for over 20 years now, and I still marvel at the exquisite quilting. The quilt measures 74 x 92 inches, and has a narrow white binding. This is a great example of 1930’s fabrics… each of the little leaves has been painstakingly appliqued, and the stems are all of a consistent narrow width. The batting is quite thin, which explains how the quilter was able to manage such tiny stitches! The quilting motifs are lovely, and a faint pencil line can be seen if you look closely. There is one small stain on the back that does not penetrate through to the front, otherwise the quilt is in fantastic condition. See the photos on Ebay for a close-up of this area.

This quilt will be a great addition to your collection!
