31701Cc Unidentified Pattern Red, white, blue 675.00
71” x 77” 1880-1910, found in central Indiana; maker unknown. Related to Brackman 4181 in structure. Fifty-nine interesting blocks that probably cannot be machine pieced; eight identical shapes like simple houses in starred indigo print are set to frame a square of double pink on point, and the resulting figure is framed by squares and rectangles of a light blue shirting print which also sashes the darker figures. A square block cannot be identified. Framing the design field are isolated indigo stair-step figures, and there is an outer border of indigo star print squares on point, framed in the light blue shirting print. The applied binding is a red and beige diagonal plaid, and the back is medium blue gingham. Hand pieced and joined; hand quilted in 1” diagonals across the entire surface. Good condition.
