"Nest and Fledgling" Quilt, c.1880; America


This cotton 1870's/1880 red and white "nest & fledgling" quilt is hand pieced and hand quilted. The pattern is also known as "rolling stone." The quilt is in very good condition, with a couple of light spots, subtle color variation in some of the red (mostly along fold lines) and no wear. The quilt feels strong and sturdy overall. The quilting is superb, with straight line, diamond feathered wreath designs quilted throughout at an even 8-10 stitches to the inch. The back is white, the hand stitched binding is the same red used in the interior, and the batting is thin.
