Antique c1845 Flying Geese Quilt with amazing Chintz fabrics, ones I have not seen before. It measures 90×100″. It is hand pieced and hand quilted. Comprised of 6 8″vertical rows of Flying Geese in an early green chintz print against a tan, brown and blue chintz print with alternating 5.5″ rows of a lovely tan, brown, and red floral print chintz fabric. There is a border on the top and bottom, 5″ wide in the same fabric. The backing is a solid tan cotton fabric, and has thin batting. The edge is finished with the back brought to the front and applied by hand. There may be a signature on the back, faded in red ink, it is illegible. It is in good condition with some overall toning and minor wear in the border, and one small tear, all having a small conservation effort to stabilize the areas, please see the photos.
