Flying Geese Quilt --- SOLD

(Item: Q-827)

This wonderful patterned quilt,,, Flying Geese quilt is in excellent condition and looks not to have been used. Actually the top appears to be from the 1880's and was probably machine quilted in the1920's or so and then it appears someone added a binding facing on the back edge, which is on one side been taken off as shown.  It cound easily be rebound with more appropriate fabric. It has wonderful fabrics in making the top and has a good design. So look at the images ,,, and it also has  nice, thin old cotton batting.   If you love old fabrics,,, this is a super quilt and a good example of old machine quilting , as was often done.  Illinois

Circa:  1880-1920
