I just love to find quilts made like this with hand written fraktur style lettering. Fancy calligraphy that we just don't ever see in many quilts and very special to find from this era. Names include several from the Swartz, Emrick and Candy families. Many are hand written in the old style, some are embroidered and others have pencil markings. The fabrics are also a treasure to find with turkey reds, madders, overdye greens, ombre, browns and pinks.
In a bears paw design. Measures 95 x 80 inches.Hand quilted at 8 stitches per inch. Edges are turned and hand sewn. Crisp, never used or washed. Has scattered age/other spotting tanning. 30 pictures to enjoy in this quilt show!
