From the late 19th century or early 1900's, a red calico whole cloth child's quilt, bedspread or possible a lap blanket. Two pieces of calico fabric have been stitched together in five even rows, lengthwise, by treadle machine.
Two colors of thread were used on the quilt, a white for the top stitching and a black bobbin thread for the quilt backing. A nice attention to detail. The front of the quilt is a red with white print. The back is a red with black print.
Width of the fabric to the center seam is 23-1/2" wide on either side. The edges of the quilt have been turned and stitched. No batting between the layers.
Overall size of the quilt is 47" wide x 49-1/2" long. Condition is very nice with little use.
Lovely as a table topper or other display in a country farmhouse setting.
Also, in another listing a blue and white calico whole cloth quilt. Both quilts came from the same household.
