Available is an unfinished mid-1800s quilt with lovely red trapunto berries and dense hand quilting. This quilt has been pieced and hand quilted with batting but does not have the binding. It is a great candidate for finishing, or using in upcycling projects.


The quilt has hand appliqued trapunto (stuffed) red berries with tan stems that were likely once green. These are set on white setting blocks with dense hand quilting. The maker's pencil marks are still visible. There is a solid tan border along all edges of the quilt. The edges are basted together with thick thread. Backing is white. Medium weight cotton batting present.


Fair antique condition. Large amount of fugitive dye, as the green has turned to tan. Large amount of dye run, with brown markings to the white setting blocks and backing. No binding present. It has not been washed and I do not recommend washing it.


Exact age and maker unknown. Fabrics and techniques used are consistent with a production date between 1860-1880.


Measures 83" x 72". Note it was photographed on a king size 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.
