This is such an amazing quilt, purchased from the makers' son who is now in his 90's.
He states that this quilt was made by his Mother, Quintilla Morris, in 1895, 3 years after she married Samuel Morris. They were early settlers to Imblec Oregon.
It measures 60" x 79"
Known as "competition" quilts, because the women where trying to make the tiniest pieces, and this one does not disappoint. While "postage stamp" quilts are highly collected, and known for their 1" square pieces, Quintilla took this one into the stratosphere by using 1/2" pieces!
It is filled with incredible early fabrics in pink, red, tan, brown, indigo, stripes, cheddar, teal, and green.
Hand quilted at 5-6 stitches per inch.
There is scalloped quilting throughout the entire quilt.
Expertly hand pieced! Each piece is a tiny triangle, and measures an amazing 1" x 1/2"
The pieces are smaller than a penny!
It is hard to see from the pictures but there is a flower basket pattern throughout the tiny pieces.
The backing is a light cream color calico with little blue flowers on it.
Filled with a thin cotton batting.
Of the thousands of tiny pieces, there are about a dozen tiny popped pieces from an early and thin cotton fabric that was used. There are a few seam separations, light edge wear, and age marks and lines on the back only. (photo'd)
We did not launder this quilt, but aired it out on the grass on a summer day. It is fresh and ready to delight the new owner.
A fabulous find from Oregon.
