P.O. BOX 134 EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y. 12061
EXQUISITELY MADE 19TH C. APPLIQUE BLOCKS IN TEAL BLUE AND RED
What a beautiful quilt these blocks would make! I can see them with a red and teal blue print sashing or a solid teal blue or red sashing would be striking as well. The workmanship is outstanding. The stitches are an incredible 12-15 per inch! I would date them as circa 1860. The blocks are a very large 20" square. There are 9 of them....enough to make a beautiful quilt. They are in excellent , unused condition.
An opportunity to acquire unused blocks that are 140 years old with exquisite workmanship. $225.
