The Double Irish Chain Quilt (c.1880)
This classic c. 1880s red, white and blue double Irish chain/postage stamp quilt (Washington P.A. Estate) is an exceptional and striking example of an antique double Irish chain quilt. An unusual addition of tiny turkey red postage stamps (on one square inch) gives the quilt a stunning visual impact.
The Double Irish Chain is outlined with a red, white and blue border. The star speckled indigo fabric is set off against a plain turkey red. White patches are accented with quilting alone.
This is a brilliantly clean, excellent display quilt.
Approx. 75 x 88 inches (190 x 225 cm).
