Material: 100% Cotton
Size: 77 x 94 inches
The quilt is in very good condition; fabric is strong, free of holes and wear, etc.
Quilting and appliqué stitches remain intact. The quilt was stored for many years
and there is some light yellowing along fold lines and minimally to a few edges.
This is most apparent on the completely white back, but also on front, to a lesser
degree. Speaking from years of experience with antique textiles this type of storage/age
related yellowing quite easily launders out, especially with pre-treatment, but since
I am not an expert on safely washing quilts I will leave this to someone more experienced.
Other than the aforementioned I see no rust, stains, etc.There is a very small 1
& 1/2 inch opening to whip stitched seam at very bottom quilt edge, (where front
is attached to back) quickly resolved with a few whip stitches.
The plus side of the quilt being stored for many years is that the gold appears to
remain quite bright, with minimal lightening/fading. Also, apparent minimal use
contributes to the overall strong condition of fabric and stitching.
Excellent 1940's Patriotic Historical American Eagle & 13 Star Quilt
