Eagle & Flag Patriotic Medallion Hand Applique WALL QUILT TOP, 1850’S recreation


3 in stock


This is a large 58″ x 58″ wall quilt top.  It is made in 100% cotton fabrics, and is exceptional in most every detail.  It will be cherished for generations to come.

A little note on this special quilt top:  This is a very special quilt top adapted from the original that hangs in the Kansas State University Collection.  This one is created exactly like it so I will describe it nearly the same.  The small details is what makes it so special.  The original was started in 1847 ( as evidenced by the one 28 star flag that adorned this quilt. ) It is assumed that the original was finished in 1851 as there are two 30 star flags and one 29 star flag that was made during the time of the 29 star flag. All the work on this quilt top is hand cut , needle turn applique.  The stars themselves are Reverse applique, and each of these creations is completed by 1 girl and takes about 2 1/2 weeks of daily handwork.  All is hand stitched to a white background fabric with no seams.

These works are perfect for one of the best wall quilts you will ever see.  Also perfect for a table centerpiece, or the perfect panel to build a wounded warrior or QOV quilt around. These wall sized panels are created as limited editions ( 20 were made) and are an addition to our miniaturized famous quilt of America collection and a less expensive alternative to the large 96″ x 96″ queen sized versions that are so popular.

( If you are creating QOV or WW quilts and need to order multiple panels ( 5 or more) please contact us for special pricing)
