Delectable Mountains Quilt: Circa 1890
  Delectable Mountains Quilt: Circa 1890   $1,800

Delectable Mountains is often a bold, dynamic pattern but in this case, even more so than most. The fabric is a very, very dark blue/ green that in limited light looks black. The use of solid color fabric makes it even stronger. The quilt has a wonderful diamond border. It came from an estate in North Carolina but with no background information. The use of some dark quilting thread leads me to believe it is of Southern origin. Condition is excellent. Measurements are 78" x 86".

It is signed on the bottom Irena Foater who was probably the proud maker but might also have been the recipient. There is a small right angle tear in the central flower that shows in the thumbnail. There are no other condition issues. Based largely upon the plaid fabric used for the binding, I date this to about... Click for details
