Velvet African-American quilt 

This is an African-American quilt with great graphics. It is made from plain and patterned velvets and fake fur, hand pieced and appliqued onto a muslin backing to give a quilted effect without an extra layer of quilting stitches. There is no batting. The back was made in four large blocks, and unfinished edges show where these come together. This quilt measures 72" by 77" and is in excellent, unused condition. There is one discolored spot on the back that does not show through on the front. This was purchased from an African-American church sale in Savannah, GA in the 1970's. A wonderful look for hanging or on a bed. Inventory Code: TPAK.   Velvet African-American quilt ... Closeup ... Closeup 2 ... Closeup 3 ... Closeup 4 ... Closeup 5 ... Closeup 6 ... Closeup 7 ...

Tree of Life quilt 

This is a Tree of Life quilt from the early 1900's. It is machine pieced and very nicely hand quilted with feather wreaths between the trees and a winding feather border. The batting is very thin. The edge was turned to the back to bind. The size is 79" h by 80" wide. It is in good to very good, washed condition with light surface soiling and only one very faint spot about 1/8" across. There is some very faint yellowing where it was folded that is visible in direct sunlight, but not in indoor light. The back is white, with one small repair about 1/4" long.
