Dutchman’s Wheel 1900 - 1920
Construction and patters indicate early 20th century. 90x72. The item is hand pieced and has been well loved. Each motif is composed of four blocks of two yellow triangles each, all on a white ground. Each of these motif blocks is alternated with a pure white block. There is a white and a yellow border around the whole quilt. The yellow has faded significantly, but the quilting is very fine. In each white block there is a flower; in the wheel blocks, the quilting is on either side of the seams (which indicates a 20th century date); and there is a double chain quilted all along the border. The quilt is very thin but does have some batting, with a slight shift.
-Item is pictured on a modern size queen bed.
