This appealing quilt came from the Dorothy Bass estate in Rocky, Oklahoma. The pattern called Duck Paddle,,, such a name you can visualize ducks wadding in a pond and paddleing to get along. The conditon of the quilt is excellent and looks to have never been washed. It is all hand quilted at 5-6 spi and the separate double pink binding is stitched on by hand both sides. Beautiful indigo sashing sets off the blocks. Note the odd block in the corner. We ask why and can come up with reasons, such as no one is perfect but God or maybe the maker had the extra block and wanted to use it up. There are several quilts from this families estate in the Oklahoma Heritage Quilts Book. This quilt is published in the book and it's on page 83. Dorothy Bass was related to the Andrews sisters who are said to have made the quilt. Rocky, Oklahoma.

This is an exceptional circa 1880's Basket Quilt in very good condition. The 2 colors of indigo and white make this an excellent choice for decorating or collecting. The indigo fabric is the same throughout the quilt, so one knows that it was an intentional choice of the quiltmaker. The hand quilting is done at a nice 7 spi and for the binding the maker just stitched it down by machine. Probably an old treadle machine was used in finishing up the quilt. The baskets are hand pieced and the handle is appliqued onto the ground fabric. This antique quilt looks great on a wall or on a bed and note the difference in design and the border of triangles. Love that triple sashing and how visual the quilt is as seen displayed. The way the maker used the triangles on the edge really frames the rest of the quilt.
