Churn Dash /"Our Baby"


31525Cc  Churn Dash /Hole in the Barn Door CRIB        Double pink, white      125.00
      36” x 36”  ca. 1900; found in South Carolina, maker unknown.   Apparently made by an expectant mother; embroidered on the center block are the words Our Baby.  Nine 8” Churn Dash blocks in double pink print and white, set on point and alternated with plain white; the back and self-bindng, back over front by hand, are also white.  Hand pieced, machine joined, hand quilted in ½” parallel lines through the pattern blocks, with small oval chains on the diagonal through the setting squares.  The setting triangles around the edges are quilted in ½” lines at right angles to the edges.  Soft and well used; a few open seams, a small tear on the back, and the double pink fabric is fragile.
