Multicolored Antique Chinese Coins Crazy Quilt
Item #C-2199 SOLD!!
From the 1870's comes this Chinese Coins quilt, HAND PIECED using colorful wool scrap bag fabrics for the coins. Dark colors (black, eggplant, grey and navy worsted wools) were used for the sashing between the rows of coins, and for the border. The initial "L" is embroidered on one corner. A beautiful green, lavender and cream paisley and floral polished cotton was used for the back. Turkey track stitching surrounds each of the coins in gold silk thread. The quilt measures 78" x 72" with a cotton batting and a hand applied slate blue binding. The backing fabric is held to the front by the binding only. In "as found" clean condition, we found some minor mothing damage (mainly on the border and binding) which someone tried to temporarily fix, and a couple very light and small stains, but no rips, tears or odors. This would make a very graphic wall hanging!!
Antique Crazy Quilt w Turkey Track Stitching
Item #2196 $229
What a marvelous clean, antique Crazy quilt! Each of the 49 blocks are HAND PIECED using scraps of wool, cotton, and velvet for the irregular pieces, with colorful Turkey Track stitching surrounding each piece. The 8-1/4" wide border fabric has golden figures woven throughout the tan background, and was brought around to the back and sewn down with colorful Turkey Track stitching to form the binding. The quilt measures 76" x 76", has a thin cotton batting, and a tan and grey striped cotton back. The front is held to the back with tiny yarn ties placed at the corner of each block. PROFESSIONALLY HAND LAUNDERED, we found no rips, or odors, but a couple very small moth nips on just a few pieces and some very, very light staining on the back only. Please note - photos don't show the richness of the colors - it's MUCH better in person!
