Or Double Millwheel according to my two block pattern books. I purchased this quilt at an estate sale yesterday. I was out and about – picking up chalk paint and stopping at thrift stores. I don’t know enough to put a date on the quilt – just that it is old. I’d love to give it a bath. Dare I toss it in my front load washer? I won’t do it before I get an okay from someone with knowledge of old quilts. It just has a slight odor. What bothers me more is the surface dirt. It looks to me like it is hand pieced. Not the finest hand quilting, but not bad and a good amount of it. Baptist fans are my favorite hand quilting design.
The binding is the front border rolled over to the back and hand stitched.
