Vintage Hand-Pieced Quilt Top, POSTAGE STAMP 92" by 83" Dramatic Colors:
Another amazing quilt TOP from the great-grandson of its maker, Gertrude Richey Weikel (1877-1961) of Paris, Texas. This one is the Postage Stamp pattern--each tiny piece the size of a postage stamp! Every piece individually hand sewn with tiny stitches. I've been a quilter for almost 60 years, and I can't even imagine the time it took to piece this one! Many bright colors--I'd say this one is more masculine in nature--might have been quite a few men's shirt fabrics used. The rows are arranged in squares around a central square. Shown on my queen-sized bed. The edges are unfinished, so it could easily have stripes added around it to make any size you'd want. All the fabric was new. There are no stains, rips, or fading--I estimate it was made in the 1930s to early 1940s. It was found in a chest carefully packed away with a Grandmother's Flower Garden top and two gorgeous hand-crocheted bedspreads.
Do check my other listings for the other top by the same maker. I do combine shipping.
