  • A beautiful Durham whole cloth quilt with history. Fresh to market.

    This is a beautiful Durham whole cloth quilt in soft pink and off white. It is entirely hand stitched. It is in beautiful condition with little/no wear of markings.

     

    The quilt was bought from a relative of the quilter who made this in the late 19th century. It was made in the pit village of Hetton-Le-Hole in County Durham. (Durham coalfields village)

     

    It was made as a wedding present. At the time the whole cloth fabric would have been a great expense. The patchwork quilt cloth was less expensive as it generally was off cuts or smaller pieces. The patterns in the stitching are typical of the area. There are floral wheel motifs among others.

     

    A fantastic usable historic quilt.
