POSTAGE STAMP STRAIGHT FURROW ZIGZAG BORDER ANTIQUE QUILT


 
POSTAGE STAMP  STRAIGHT FURROW  ZIGZAG BORDER ANTIQUE QUILT
   

 



Studious piecing of a multitude of little four patch groupings that were arranged with careful color placement  produced a dynamic  geometric design with diagonal angled lines of color traversing  the busy field. Each piece is one inch, cut from harmonious late 19th c cotton prints in deep earth tones highlighted with white.  All that energy is contained within a white pieced zigzag border all around. A tour de force of design using the simplest of piecing.
