quilt, circa 1910, Strippy Bars from Illinois, possibly Mennonite. It measures
75" by 84" with bars measuring 5" wide in red, pink, green, and yellow cotton
prints. It is machine pieced and hand quilted in white thread in an allover
Chevron pattern, with the direction changing in each bar, each line about 1"
apart. There is a small blue and white check cotton on the back, and the
batting is thin. Edges are finished by hand with the front brought over to the
back. The backing is a white cotton solid fabric. Batting is thin.
is in very good condition, there is some minor fading in the folds, and one
small repair...it looks like tear that went all the way through, and it was
stitched closed. More noticeable on the back, than on the front.
