Redwork Embroidered Quilt Top w/ Fabulous Border(Item: QT-216)
Redwork Embroidered Quilt Top w/ Fabulous Border(qt-216) Circa 1890's, size 63x78. This wonderful example of redwork has a great variety of patterns, some familiar and some not so, but very well done. Also the border really adds to this great top. There is some deterioration of the muslin in a couple blocks, the worst is shown, just a spot in the other one. This could be backed with other muslin or like fabric or left as is if desired. Beautiful hand piecing. Take a look at some of the patterns. Hudson Valley, N.Y. area.
