Wool 19th Century Bar Quilt
Pioneer Bar Quilt. Circa 1860-70. Eastern Ontario. 72" x 82". Rust, black and blue. Meticulous fan quilting created with the challenges of working the needle through thick wool fabric. Interesting creative workmanship with the pieced wool materials maintaining precision with the pattern of the long straight bars. Nice to see and study the quilters excellence with working the pieced fabric into these bars and which also shows a slight variation with the hand dyed materials. A nice early quilt!
