At an antique mall in Door County I found this chicken scratch quilt on sale for $51.00. I love the chicken scratch to start with and with this wonderful design in this good of condition it’s a find!
Machine quilted. by the unevenness of the design I’d say it was done on a home machine.
The eagle is my favorite of all the blocks.
Each block is individually stitched and then all sewn together.
I don’t know if it was preprinted but I would have to think it was, or it was traced expertly, all of the designs are nicely done.
The edge going all the way around has little peaking triangles.
The very edge of the quilt had a cute peaky design all the way around.
Close up of the stitching.
I believe this quilt is from the 1930’s. It’s got a cotton batting, and it’s a good weight, it feels comfy.
I’ll have it appraised at some time and keep you posted on the results.
I’m really happy with my purchase.
