I have been collecting antiques for over 60 years and began selling as "The Antique Heart" about 30years ago. I sell at shows and out of my home. Many of my pieces are from my own personal collection. I am particular about what I buy and collect and I deal primarily in early Americana. I accept payment by check and will ship once the check clears the bank. I charge only the exact cost of shipping and you may return items within 3 days of receiving them, if you are not satisfied. The return shipping will be paid by the customer. Thank you for your interest in The Antique Heart. Feel free to call me if you have questions. Lona

A touch of yellow brightens any room, and this striking 19th century quilt does just that. The 9 square pattern in blues is enhanced by the yellow calico and the small squares across the middle in brown. The quilter evidently ran out of the fabric, so did the last squares substituting with a light pink. The backing and the edge trim is done in a blue gingham homespun. Measuring 86" x 70" with a very light batting it is a nice comfortable weight. There are no stains, flaws or repairs, so is in excellent condition and appears never to have been laundered.

Price: $495.00
