Barrister’s Block 1880-1900
1880-1900. 64x78. Springfield, IL, USA. Twelve blocks, with white and ditzy fabric backing, surrounded by double pink sashing and a wide border. The fabrics in the motifs are colorful mourning prints, bronze prints and plaids, reds, and navy. This is all machine pieced, including the turned-over binding. The backing is white. There is little or no batting. The quilting is in triple diagonal lines over all at 9st/in, an unusual feature in the late 19th century. A few yellowing spots, but the condition is excellent!
