Chevrons and Wild Goose Chase Quilt

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This unusual quilt beautifully combines three patterns. I have never seen the Herringbone (aka Chevrons) and Wild Goose Chase patterns combined in this way. Even more original is the way the triangles of the Wild Geese are filled with tiny, irregular shaped Crazy pieces. The whole makes a stunning composition. As it is silk, it is in delicate condition. There is some fracturing to the fabrics visible with close examination. The quilt would best be used as a wall hanging. Measurements are 64" x 69".
