Antique Circa 1790 Philadelphia Quaker Graphic Star Silk Quilt

Description: This 1790′s Graphic Star Silk Quilt is in amazing condition. Silk in the 18th & 19th century was strictly the fabric of the wealthy.

Silk quilts were not made to be used, but to be displayed. It is hand pieced and quilted. It is heavily quilted with double line outline quilting. The quilter has shown her skill with straight and even stitches, 8-9 stitches to the inch. The black binding is hand applied and the back of the quilt is brown. The batting is thin.
