American Patriotic Flag Quilt SOLD(Item: Q-742)
These antique/vintage American Flag quilts don't come along very often. Offering this Flags on the Steps quilt from circa 1920's. It is in very good condition and is ready to display in so many ways. There are 42 flags and they are set in a streak of lightening type format with red sashing. The poles on the flags are brown and the flags of a red and white with an off shade for the ground fabric. It is all hand quilted at 8 spi. The quilt was also hand pieced. For the binding the back was brought forward to the front and hand stitched down. There's a couple different shades of red for the sashing, as you can see in the pictures. All original. Lots of hand quilting. The quilt doesn't look to have ever been washed and there's some slight pencil quilting marks still visible. A great quilt for any collection.
