APPLIQUE SUMMER QUILT
Unknown Quilt Maker
Collected in Michigan
80 x 80 inches
~ FRESH ~ and Fresh to the Market ~
We are calling this lightweight piece a "summer quilt"
because it has no batting/filler.
Nonetheless, it is finely and densely hand quilted
at an impressive 8 - 9 stitches per inch (counting one side only.)
Also hand appliqued with a sampling of designs ~
some traditional/floral types ...
plus two wonderful appliqued borders of birds and six point stars.
(Birds: the rarely seen "Chubby-Giant-Footed Aqua-Wing.")
Each bird has an embroidered eye.
Excellent Clean Condition.
Separately applied white cotton tape binding.
