Patriotic Crib Quilt

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The construction of this Patriotic Crib Quilt is as unusual as the combination of motifs. Each of the black background areas is actually made of thin strips of satin (about 1/4" wide), much like the strips of a Log Cabin pattern quilt. This construction feature makes the quilt as visually interesting in the detail as well as the overall design.
It is professionally mounted on a stretcher measuring 39 1/2" tall x 39" wide. Condition is excellent. Made in Pennsylvania in the 1890's.
