African American Pine Burr Quilt

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Exceptional African American pine burr quilt. All hand quilted and pieced. Found in Selma, Alabama. Fantastic color placement and design. These quilts were made with leftover fabric and clothing. These quilts are very labor intensive and would take many years to finish. A simple frame is needed for this quilt to hang on the wall. We do not have it attached to a frame in the image. Framed it will hang appropriately on the wall. This quilt makes a very dynamic wall hanging.
