Pine Tree 1885-1925
1885-1925. 68x81. Found in Illinois, USA. What an awesome small quilt. This is one of our favorites. Green pine tree motifs are made of triangles on a ground of white with tiny flowers. The blocks are diagonal squares that face each other in the center of the quilt. This is hand pieced. The sashing is red in part, but has faded to dun in the majority of the quilt, probably due to a difference in the dye used. The top and bottom borders are red and green, and the side borders are red. These reds are not faded. There is a knife edged border that is held together with three rows of quilting. The batting is of medium weight, and the backing is white. The quilting is in straight lines at 4-5 st/in in red, green and white thread. Other than the color fading, the quilt is in excellent condition.
