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. The price is $1200.00. Inventory Code: TPAK. Velvet African-American quilt ... Closeup ... Closeup 2 ... Closeup 3 ... Closeup 4 ... Closeup 5 ...
