Redwork Sampler Embroidered Dated 1893 Quilt-$895.00

(Item: Q-846)

This is an exceptional Redwork quilt that has so much detail and so many blocks of a great variety. It is like a storybook maybe that depicts the life of the quiltmaker. Many of the blocks I have never seen in other redwork quilts.  There are 140 blocks of redwork embroidery and the quilt is also dated 1893. The condition of the quilt is excellent and it is all hand quilted at 6 spi.  When I see quilts like this that have so much thought and work that went into the making of it I wonder about their daily lives that are seen in the blocks of the quilt. I can see in this quilt the events in ones life at that time period and also animals, children and flowers. Some of the blocks include cats, dogs, children playing, a wishing well, the sun, cup and saucer, wash board, sissors, thread and needle, a cooked turkey, an anvil, toad under the mushroom, chicks hatching and much more. For the binding the backing was brought forward and stitched down by hand.  Woodstock, New York area.
