Colors: Cream/Off White and Blues. Provenance: This quilt was handmade by my great grandmother and her 2 sisters on their midwestern farm 121 years ago.
I do not think they used a machine. Im certain a quilt expert can take a closer look and determine. It has been stored for years in a cedar chest. It was stored folded but refolded frequently. I do not see any rips, tears or stains.I did notice when inspecting, it has, some fading. It is in remarkable condition considering its age.
Im hoping to re home this exceptional work of art, to a person that appreciates the craft and will treasure it for years to come.
