Antique c1870s Basket Quilt measuring 76×92 inches. The scale is very small for a quilt this size, 130 basket blocks, 5×5 inches, set on point, with brown print alternating squares and setting triangles. There is a 2 inch wide sawtooth border in pink and brown prints on 3 sides. It is hand pieced, hand appliqued, and hand quilted. There is a thin cotton batting, and brown print backing. An applied binding in the same print as the back finishes the edge on one side, the other 3 sides are finished back applied to front. This is a very well planned, and finely executed quilt. In good condition with superficial spots and some fading. I believe many of the brown prints were originally purple that have gone fugitive. If you have any doubt, please ask questions! We will provide extra pictures, or can schedule an in person or video conference preview at your convenience.
