This is an Antique American quilt made circa 1890s-1920s. It is an applique quilt. It is very rare to see an applique quilt made with indigo fabrics, but even more exceptional is the hand embroidered two birds in a bush motif around the border of the quilt. This is Lancaster County Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. It is very rare and unusual. The quilt is hand appliqued, hand quilted, and hand embroidered. There is an overall distress and faded look to the indigo. In some places there is tanning and yellowing on the white background around the border. However we were not willing to sacrifice the border to cut out the age marks. This piece is a true rescue and in our opinion well worth it. The quilt is a summer weight, it was never meant for warmth but for aesthetics. It is thin, soft, light weight and has a wonderful drape. We attached distressed Levi trucker Jacket sleeves and collar. We selected round wooden buttons as closures. Please note, we made the pockets larger on this duster in order to preserve the applique. As a result the pockets may appear baggy. If you have further questions please direct message us and we are happy to send you a video.
