Description

This stunning and intricately detailed wholecloth quilt is completely hand-quilting on an off-white muslin fabric. The hand-stitched design begins with the medallion center, which features 8-point stars, flowers, and birds, all circled by a feathered border. An intertwining feathered design also surrounds the shape of the bed and the pillow tuck, as well as the scalloped border. A criss-crossed pattern is stitched throughout the entire piece.

A wholecloth quilted is perfect for decorating with accent pieces! (See gallery photos for examples.)

Measurements:

Queen (98″ W x 112″ L)

A queen mattress is 60″ wide and 80″ long, therefore this quilt would have a 19″ drop on each side.

All quilts are long enough to allow for a significant drop at the foot of the bed as well as a nice pillow tuck so there is no need for shams.

About This Pattern:

The story goes that Milton Hershey’s wife saw this design on a building. She adored it so much that her husband commissioned a quilter to stitch the image into an heirloom/wholecloth quilt. Prior to this, heirloom/wholecloth quilts that featured beautiful medallion centers were prominent in quilt culture far before pieced quilts became popular. Pieced quilts did not come into the picture until after the textile industry in America took off in the late 1800’s/

Made by Amish quilter, Annie
