Today we are offering a fabulous full sized pieced, handmade bed quilt that dates to the 1920s or 30s. It is made of all cotton, with various printed calico pieces and backed in white cotton. It is not a thick quilt and does not have any batting between the layers. The quilting stitches on the back are entirely done by hand. The pattern is similar to the bandana pattern or a variation thereof. It is in good condition but would definitely benefit from a gentle laundering. It has been stored for a long time and true to its age shows wear, discoloration in areas particularly along the edges, and fabric loss to 3 quilt square which were made with silk, but it is free from any strong odors or noticable stains.
Measures 74 x 86″ which we believe will fit a double/full sized bed (standard is 84 x 90″). Please see additional condition comments above and take a good look at all photos. Wonderful piece for display, for use in the warm months, or to add to a vintage quilt collection!
