This Princess Feather (aka Prince's Feather) quilt has two particularly unusual features. The central motif as well as the centers of the feathers are all stuffed applique. Four hearts surround the very center motif. Yellow within the stuffed work appliques really makes them pop. The other especially distinctive feature is that the feathers terminate in unusual pointed shapes.The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. It is nicely quilted with a variety of patterns. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860. Measurements are 82" x 84".
