Last year I put two of my quilts up for sale and one sold immediately...I decided at the last moment to hang on to this one as I had three Featured Artist exhibits coming up and needed this quilt for those. I've decided it's once again time to try and find a new special home for this beautiful piece.
This was quilted about three years ago and was created from a vintage banquet sized tablecloth. It has net lace inserts and measures 96 x 65. Hundreds of hours went into the quilting. Although it has never been entered into a show for competition it has appeared in three of my last Featured Artist exhibits.
The quilt consists of four layers...the vintage tablecloth...a tan-colored cotton underlayment...a full thickness wool batting and a cotton backing. Superior Threads' Bottom Line, Highlights and So Fine thread were used for all the quilting and there are a few scattered freshwater pearls added for embellishment.
I had this professionally appraised last year for $5,500 and I am asking $6000. If you are interested in providing my special quilt with a lovely new home, please contact me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org or you can visit my shop on Etsy.
Thank you! Hugs, Cindy :)
