While the freshly-washed quilts are easily to hand (ie they’re not back in the cupboard yet) it seemed like a good idea to show another one – hope it’s not getting too repetitive and boring! I have no provenance for this quilt (like so many of the others in the cupboard) and paid very little for it at an antique fair at least 10years ago. And just in case you are wondering what constitutes “very little” in my quilt buying terms – £50 or less. The condition of this particular quilt could not be described as good, there are lots of broken stitches and signs of general wear and tear but the overall design is still clear and appealing. It measures a standard 72inches x 90inches, white cotton sateen front and back, cotton batting that has seriously shifted in places, knife edge finish, single line of machine stitching at the very edge. I especially like the “unturned” corners where the running feather goes straight to the edge then begins again in the new direction, rather than curving elegantly around the corner.
Time to put this quilt away and get some stitching done!
