This is a lovely antique quilt with wear and tear that retains some incredible details of hand quilting and embroidery. There are several names embroidered within the handles of each basket - Mother (done twice), Allie Beck, Lulu Burnett, Stella Finn, Lillie Beck, initials AED, Mammie Grey, initials MNJ, and Lottie Barnett.

Although I do not have provenance or any history on this quilt, the carefully recorded names and style of quilt indicate friendships and family ties. I did not wash this quilt, due to concerns with dye stability. Despite its flaws, it is a wonderful piece for a collector or maker.


The quilt is pieced in a simple basket pattern set on point. The alternate blocks are an unusual salmon pink closely striped pattern that appears solid from a distance. Each basket is made of antique calico, with a wide variety of indigo, turkey red, shirting fabrics, and brown prints. It is hand quilted with dark pink and white thread at 7 stitches per inch. It is hand pieced.

There is a mix of hand and machine applique of the basket handles. The batting is medium weight cotton. The backing was originally white muslin (see CONDITION). The binding is the same fabric as the setting blocks and is machine finished.


Multiple flaws. This quilt was not washed by me, but I aired it in the sun for a few days, back side up. There is general staining to the backing with color run of dark brown from two of the front blocks. Seam separation noted in one of the backing panels. One lightened spot noted in front. There are black marks along two of the corners with seam separation and minor fabric loss. Overall the front remains intact, with little seam separation or fabric loss noted to patches.


Based on fabrics and quilting, this quilt is estimated to have been made circa 1900.


74" x 63"; would fit a modern twin bed.

This is a vintage item with normal wear and tear due to its age. Review photos and descriptions carefully. I have made every effort to accurately describe these items. Message me with any questions you have before making a purchase.
