Amish Baskets Quilt with Handle

(Item: Q-852)

Offering this attractive pieced Basket pattern quilt with appliqued handles. From the midwest and looks to be an Amish or Mennonite quilt. The conditon is very good having only some subtle fading that is occassionally seen in the Amish quilts due to the solid colored fabrics used and this quilt was displayed or lightly used at some time, but  shows no wear.  The 2 colors are  soft grey and wine. The Baptist fan quilting shows off quite well and the lines are close together. The hand quilting is at 7 spi.  The backing is a shade of grey also and may be hand dyed. The quilt looks to be all hand pieced. For the binding the back was brought to the front and is hand stitched down.  Midwest USA
