OLD MAID'S RAMBLE
Unknown Quilt Maker
Collected in California
66 x 80 inches
Circa 1930
Cottons
McPherson Collection

Price: $985


~ Another Treasure from the Sandra McPherson Collection ~

This superb textile was made circa 1930, 
with tons of great examples of printed cotton fabrics of that era.

The quilt is in EXCELLENT CONDITION.
Flat, square, lightweight and with no fabric weakness.

Well made, hand quilted, and separately bound.

While the wonderful artistry of the quilt speaks for itself,
we here paraphrase our artist friend, Joe Cunningham comments on this quilt:

 In quilt making, you can arrange and rearrange blocks any way you like ~
that's one of the beauties of it all.

But few quilters find more innovative ways of arranging blocks.
 The way this maker scattered the Old Maid's Ramble blocks among these string blocks
is simply brilliant."

Here is another example of a graphically successful, artistically exciting American quilt
found by the gifted California collector and quilt connoisseur,
Sandra McPherson.

Price: $885
