*********************

Bold graphics. Authentic. American Folk Art.

Pristine, crisp, unwashed. Unfaded. (Light marks in close-ups are from sun peeking through fence slats.)

Hand pieced, entirely, with precision. Lays flat. All cotton.

This true beauty boasts a remarkable central medallion via solid turkey red, indigo and cheddar yellow Tumbling Blocks and unbleached, warm off-white/cream tone galaxy of muslin stars. These solid cottons most likely pre-date the finishing of this top and are probably from the last quarter 19th century.

The outer ring of same blocks include indigo calico, shirting stripes, plaids, printed gingham, dobby wovens and a distinctly Art Deco geometric print on pea green making construction, finishing of quilt top date to 1920s, possibly earliest 1930s.

Borders include late 1800s-early 1900s workwear chambray stripes, iconic homespun type checks and plaids in dark indigo blue, brown and chamois tan/chambray blue. (Contrary to popular myth, genuine cotton (& wool) handmade homespun production ceased prior to 1850 almost completely in the U.S.; cotton 'homespun' checks were factory mfg. in huge quantities.)

79" x 62.5"

Excellent antique condition, exceptionally clean: no stains/foxing/age spots, loose stitching or quilt pieces, frays/tears/shattered fabric or repairs observed. As nice as you will find.

Ready to quilt. Hang on wall for maximum impact. This timeless art works in diverse spaces from urban lofts to country farmhouses to primitive cabins.

PAYMENT: Accepted only by credit/debit card via Google Checkout secure processing service OR mailed money order/cashier's check or well concealed cash for small $$ amounts. International buyers pay by Google Checkout. I WILL MANUALLY GENERATE MY GOOGLE CHECKOUT INVOICE after order is place.
