Four Block Applique Eagle Quilt-Border- Exhibited-SOLD

(Item: Q-671)

Offering this antique Eagle 4 block quilt with a triple border. The quilt is in excellent/very good condition with no wear. It is hand quilted at 7-8 spi and the applique is done by both hand and machine.The way the eagles are placed makes it a good wall quilt as they are all directional and also looks great on a bed. This was one of the quilts on display at the International Quilt Festival , 2010, in the exhibit America Collects- Patriotic Quilts, from my collection. Love the way the maker did the curved/wavey borders and the central pattern.  Colors of red, cheddar and fugitive green. For the binding the back was brought forward to the front and machine stitched down. Great to add to a collection. Eagle quilts are sometimes hard to find.  Massachusetts
