MUSEUM QUALITY Vintage PRE CIVIL WAR Whig Rose Antique Quilt Swag Border! This VIBRANT cotton whig rose/yellow rose quilt is hand appliqued and hand quilted, with hand embroidered accents and a nice swag and tassel border. Not only does the quilt predate the Civil War, but the fabrics all appear to be from the pre-1830 era (using Trestain's fabric dating guide)! The quilt measures 68" X 82" and is in excellent condition, with a couple of light age spots and no wear. There is quilting around and within the applique and in floral and vine designs in the background, all at 7 stitches to the inch.
The back is white, the edge is hand stitched ("knife edge") and the batting is thin.
