Antique Quilt c1890 measuring 81 inches by 89 inches in a Triple Irish Chain pattern in red and green. Blocks are about 11 inches by 11 inches with alternating checkboard pattern, and white with applied square corners. The blocks are set straight 7.5 by 8, note there is a half row on one side. I do not think it was cut down, just the quilter’s decision. White cotton backing and thin cotton batting. Back is brought to the front to finish the narrow edge. It is hand pieced, hand appliqued, and hand quilted. The workmanship on this quilt is quite lovely. Believed to have been from the Shenandoah Valley, VA region. In very good condition. Only 2 very small dot marks and pencil markings are still evident under the quilting. In house Flat Rate Shipping of $25 is a domestic shipping estimate. I will gladly combine multiple lots for your convenience and economy. Depending on how many lots I can pack, it may cost an additional $5-$10. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.Edited 5/27/2021 9:30am ET Mothers maiden name is YanceyFathers name is Sipe.Fathers mother’s name is Rothgeb.Staunton and Harrisonburg, VA.
