In A Museum Rare old quilt, of faded hue- Once a bride's most precious treasure Hidden in her dower chest. Loving hands that fashioned you Stitch by stitch, in careful measure Long ago, are now at rest. Your patches tell a wondrous story Of treasured scraps and handicraft; Of love & home, and dreams come true. For honored guests your pattern'd glory, Enfolding them, caressing, soft- And baby hands have lightly touched you. Now you're worth your weight in gold; To lie in state, your only duty, In pleasant ways your lot is cast. And to the world your tale is told. To those who love your patterned beauty You re-create the fragrant past. Carrie A. Hall
This fabulous quilt was made in the early 1900's by Alice (Shew) Lindamood of East Sparta, Ohio (September 11, 1911 - May 8, 1989). The pattern is "Ocean Wave" and it's so striking with it's dark, dark indigo coloring hand pieced to a light beige backing. It measures 80" x 79" & it's in very good condition, even more so since it was made prior to 1930. It has been well-cared for & properly stored since Alice's death in 1989. It has never been laundered, nor does it need to be now. You can still see the pencil trace lines. I don't believe it has ever been used or displayed. The only blemish that I can see is a few very small stains; and I've pictured them all in the last series of pictures. There are no rips, tears or holes, absolutely no fraying. Lots of hand piecing with so many triangles in the body as well as the great saw tooth border! Those of you who buy from me regularly already know what a stickler I am for detail so one more thing... The backing is just a bit more beige than my pictures show you. My pictures make that fabric look a bit gray. It is light beige.
Alice was an excellent quilter as you can clearly see ~ the border was quilted with narrow 1/2" diagonal lines along with a long & continuous feather motif. The off-white centers were all quilted in a 1" grid design while the triangular pattern was quilted more narrow diagonal lines... all with 9 spi. The stitches are so straight & evenly spaced, nice & tight. This quilt has it all.... two colors, a great border, fabulous quilting, an antique quilt that looks brand new!
Please take a look at the other quilts I have listed. I'm happy to combine shipping costs for you.

About Me: It all started when I was a little girl.... Gramma gave Mom a piece of Flow Blue that had been passed down in our family, then she would pass it on to me. Gramma knitted, crocheted, & quilted but being a "lefty", I could never get the hang of knitting or crocheting so I learned to quilt & applique. My love of quilts & antiques comes honestly I guess. I am a "collectaholic" so I've had to set new rules for myself... "If I buy one more quilt, one has to be sold". There's just not enough room anymore! Several years ago I decided to leave a 25 year career in Human Resources Management & do something for myself... spend more time with family & friends, garden when this Ohio weather allows, & hunt for quilts, vintage clothing & hats, & other antiques.
