Glorified Postage Stamp Irish Chain Quilt - $550.00

(Item: Q-851)

This Texas quilt called Glorified Postage Stamp Super Irish Chain,,, and sometimes called Quilt of a Thousand Pieces is in very good condition. There's some slight toning as shown. The small scale pieces look to be nice 1920's-30's prints.  The pieces are only 7/8th inch in size, so smaller than a postage stamp! It is hand quilted on a diagonal pattern and the hand quilting is at 5-6 spi. There's about 5-6 black blocks with some slight wear.  For the binding the backing was brought forward to the front and stitched down and on one side there's a knife edge.  It looks to be all hand pieced,,, so much work. The quilt displays well and looks great used on a bed or a wall quilt with a good visual design.
