The numbers might eventually get too much for me but we are almost at the end of the recently-acquired vintage quilts – this one arrived in December and did (I think) get a brief mention earlier. I’m really pleased with this one as I’m very fond of strippy quilts, and red and white is also a favourite combination. Measurements are 100 x 96 inches. Turkey Red and white twill fabrics, cotton wadding, in good condition throughout. The patterns are very simple but it packs a lot of charm. As with every quilt, it’s all in the detail – a whipstitched edge rather than a knife edge, a goosewing motif sneaking in to fill space, alternating filler within the main lines of the cable … and the small triangles are handpieced too! Quite a contrast to the other quilts I’ve shown, but there are other strippies in The Cupboard to keep it company. Maybe I should fetch those out for an airing too? ….
