Antique 1880`s Indigo Quilt 70" x 80" With Pillow Cover






I have been consigned this wonderful antique Indigo Quilt, circa 1880`s. Included is a rare hard to find matching Pillow Cover. Made by a member of the Olds family in eastern Michigan in the 1880`s. These hardy folk traveled west about that time settling in Marin County, California. The pillow cover is in excellent condition, the quilt has quite a bit of wear. It is quilted at 7 stitches per inch.

I will put up more detailed pictures and information soon. I know there are many antique quilt lovers out there. This is a wonderful piece of art and history.
