This Texas quilt called Glorified Postage Stamp Super Irish Chain,,, and sometimes called Quilt of a Thousand Pieces is in very good condition. There's some slight toning as shown.

Offering this fabulous Log Cabin Quilt from the 1880's that is in excellent condition. Taking a look at the great number of fabrics in this quilt one can only imagine all the time it took to piece and make this quilt. The quilting is around the block and more or less in the ditch, so not easily seen from the front , but more so on the back. Small narrow width logs make up this beauty. Just seeing all the shirting fabrics used in this quilt and wondering if they were left overs after making clothes. Also several conversation prints were used in this quilt. This is a great design, a light-dark log cabin, courthouse steps. From Little Compton, Rhode Island estate as I was told.

Imagine piecing all those small hexagons!! Looks great displayed and a super nice quilt for a collection. Note the detail of the border. Illinois estate.
This is a super extra nice Grandmothers Flower Garden quilt. Note the extra small pieces. The hexagons are only an inch big, or more like an one inch small! This quilt has the green hexagons in between the gardens. There are so many ways to set a flower garden together depending on the prints/solids used, and this is a very attractive way in doing it. Also the edge is quite unusual, as the maker kept each hexagon and did not cut them off making a straight border. Then it was bound using the knife edge method. Quality abounds in the making of this quilt. It displays so nicely and great for a collection or to enjoy. A true keepsake.
This is one fine Triple Irish Chain antique quilt. The quilting is excellent with fine hand quilting stitches at 9 spi. The condition is great, as it really looks unused, excellent and has had one bath. I acquired it from an estate in Sayre, Oklahoma. The lady was more of a collector, so I don't think it actually was one of her family quilts. The colors of deep yellow and brown work so well together and it has a triple border of the brown, yellow and white. There's a neat brown binding that is so nicely stitched on by hand in tiny stitches. The small blocks are barley 1 1/4 inch. It displays so nicley on either a bed or a wall or many other thoughtful ways. I can't say enough about the fine workmanship of this quilt. Western Oklahoma
