This antique fabric came off the back of a tied comforter. The front was damaged, but I salvaged this great old piece of fabric. The entire piece measures 62″ in length and is 62″ wide. There were two pieces of 25 & 1/2″ wide, selvage to selvage sewn together, plus an added 11 & 1/2″ of fabric, which makes the 62″ width.
This old fabric has an estimated date of 1890-1910. It is all cotton, blue and white check homespun. This is actually factory made, but in the antique soft goods business it carries the name of “homespun”. It always looks great with early Americana.
The condition is used. One side has a bit more color, since it was on the inside of the comforter. The fabric is soft with wear, has some marks (see photo) and holes where the ties where located. One edge has some of the quilt front attached and can easily be cut off. Aged, but strong and sturdy…laundered. Great for display, period quilts or doll clothes. Lots of fabric yardage here!
PRICE: $48.00 for the entire piece- any lines are from my camera!
