1840's Mariner's Compass Antique Quilt

Lot 0095A Details

Description
This cotton 1830's/1840's mariner's compass/sunburst quilt is hand pieced and hand quilted, with a hand appliqued swag border. It measures 94" X 96" and is in very good condition, with the occasional light spot and no wear. The red binding appears to have been placed by hand in places with matching red from the era. The quilting is remarkable, with quilting around the piecework and in close grid, straight line/stipple and feathered designs in the background, all at an even 10-12 stitches to the inch. The back is white, the hand stitched binding is red, and the batting is thin. You can see cotton seed residue inside when you hold the quilt up to the light.
