The Cypress Quilt: Circa 1870
Several features make this patchwork quilt out of the ordinary. Although at first glance the pattern doesn't appear unusual, it is actually not standard but comes closest to those listed as The Cypress and Mosaic (although it is not my idea of a mosaic). The indigo ground is also an unusual feature and made even nicer by the variety of blue fabrics incorporated. The use of a background material with a tiny light blue element makes the indigo appear inkier than if the print had been with white. In addition, the Delectable Mountains border is a wonderful continuation of the triangle theme .Nicely quilted; excellent condition. Measures 66" x 86"; New York State origin.
