Barbara says - Blue and white is an elegant and timeless combination and one I particularly like when it comes to quilts. I bought this quilt at International Quit Festival in Houston in the late 1990s. By a happy coincidence on the same day I also acquired a second quilt (black & white this time) from another vendor because the quilting and setting was so similar to this. Both quilts can probably be dated to 1880 – 1900 but there is no specific provenance.
The original quilts measure about 58 x 70 inches and the fully illustrated instructions will enable you to recreate this blue and white one, complete with its quilting design. A picture and description of the black and white version is included in the pattern - so you could make one of each!
