Cake Plate

Unidentified Quilt Maker
68 x 84 inches
Circa 1870
Origin Unknown; Possibly PA
Excellent, Crisp Condition

Excellent Condition ~  Crisp!

Full of gorgeous cotton prints, this 19th century precisely pieced quilt is all about triangles.  Those that make up the "Cake Plate" design, and those that are included
in the multiple borders on all four sides.

The hand quilting is exceedingly well executed, at about 11 tiny stitches per inch (counting one side only). The quilt maker's choice of straight line quilting, varied and carefully planned, subtly mimics and supports the shapes of the patchwork.
