Vintage Elongated Hexagons Charm Comfort Quilt measures 81x 86 “. I believe the top was constructed around the 1870s and it was finished in the 1940s. It appears the top is a charm quilt top with no 2 elongated hexagons of the same fabric, they are all different. There is a variety of cheddar prints, Turkey red prints, Garibaldi red prints, Centennial green prints, Lancaster blue prints, mourning prints, shirtings, a variety of brown prints and much more. The top is hand pieced, and it is hand tied with a white embroidery floss. There is a thin cotton batting, and a 1940s brown and purple floral print reverse. The edge is finished knife edge style and by machine. It is in good condition with several small spots, a large discoloration in the bottom border, and about 3 fabrics are deteriorating. This quilt is from the estate of Sharon Stark, noted Pennsylvania textile dealer and award winning author.
