This unbelievably superb and very large antique / vintage hand made Yo Yo Patchwork quilt was made circa 1920's. Bought in New Zealand some years ago.
It is made up from beautiful patterned cottons, with an intense cobalt blue edges on 2 sides and panel in the middle. The gorgeous cotton patch patterns used look like all the most beautiful tea dresses produced in the 1910-20's. It is a massive 188cm x 238cm and represents probably years of work. Shown both ways on a queen sized bed.
It has 2 areas where one of the yoyos have been replaced by 4 x smaller ones, please see last 2 photos of these repairs, these of course could be reversed and done better. No holes or disintergrated fabrics.
It is in excellent and quite unbelievable condition for its age. No doubt it was made as an heirloom quilt and is one of the finest I have ever seen.It is for the serious collector or a museum. Please see my other vintage listings. Please see the photos as they form the greater part of the description.
