Cactus Basket Quilt
Unidentified Quilt Maker
80 x 82 inches
Origin Unknown; Found in California
A little sweetheart from an excellent California collection. The color of the double blue ground and sashing is a bit difficult to capture in photos, but it serves the Basket blocks, set on point, beautifully.
The Baskets are all different and offer up a good look at what early-mid 20th century printed cottons looked like. The double borders at top and bottom make the quitl ever so slightly rectangular.
Excellent Condition. Thin and lightweight with nice hand quilting.
