This 33-inch by 16-inch quilt piece is from a late 1800s turkey red and ivory quilt in a pattern called Cross Roads to Jericho. The second photo shows the entire piece, which has two red blocks. The piece has a very antique character to it. The blocks were hand-pieced, and the sashing and border were attached by machine, probably with a treadle machine. The hand-quilting is done in white thread at 6-8 SPI. There are a couple places in the red blocks where the quilt stitching has pulled out and is missing. Two edges of the piece are binding edges, and both are worn along the edge. There is a very small hole in the red fabric on one of the squares on one of the blocks, and a very small hole in a white square on the other block. There is age yellowing on the front of the piece. The last photo shows the back of the piece, and a darker yellow stain next to the short binding edge.
I do my very best to accurately describe each piece of fabric I sell, but please remember that this piece is from a cutter quilt that has been used and it is not perfect. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I am always happy to provide additional information about my items.
