SPIDERWEB or STRIP HEXAGONS SILK ANTIQUE QUILT


 
SPIDERWEB or STRIP HEXAGONS SILK ANTIQUE QUILT

 



An intricate variation using the silk fancy dress materials so popular in quiltmaking in the last quarter of the 19th century. Each of the 6 triangles comprising the hexagon section is pieced using narrow varied patterned silk strips. Possible the work of a dressmaker who had access to such luxury scraps. Well orchestrated to produce a long distance graphic, as the pieced segments are framed by black that creates a strong grid. In excellent condition. Lovely lace border is complete, easily removable if the purchaser opts for a solely geometric quilt.
