The Gatherings is happy to offer this outstanding blue and white calico quilt from the late Victorian period.  It is completely hand stitched and hand quilted.  A grid of diamonds in a dot fabric are laided point to point forming each block measuring 13" square.  There are 16 blocks in the quilt, each surrounded with a chain design forming the inside borders as well as the outside. 

The same dot fabric is used for the binding, stitched, rolled over the edge, and hand stitched .  Several motifs of quilting is incorporated to make this even a more stunning quilt.  The quilting on the very edge of the border is done in a diagional pattern while feather stitching is featured between the chain areas. 

Inside the diamond blocks, the quilting is three rows of straight stitching between a wider row which reminds me of a zigzag stitch.  The blue dot fabric is also quilted in straight as well as diagonal stitch.  A very interesting quilt with fine workmanship.

Quilt stitches measure 8" to the inch.  Overall size of the quilt is 76" 80".  It is a summer weight quilt with thin batting.  The white fabric of the quilt is muslin with the backing being the same.

Condition:  Very nice.  It appears never to have been laundered so it does have overall yellowing with some heavier oxidation marks.
