"Once Upon a Time"

Three Little Pigs Quilt

Item Number S09904

I remember hearing this charming bedtime story as a child and then retelling it to my daughter when she was just a toddler.... Some things just take my breath away...this one also stopped me in my tracks from across the room!  This adorable fairy tale quilt is handsomely appliquéd and meticulously quilted by a practiced hand -- a grandmother's labor of love?  The quilting averages 7 - 8 stitches to the inch with an elaborate swaged border that surrounds a diamond quilted center.  The appliqués are applied with an astounding 18 stitches per inch -- almost too many to count!  The back is white.  My favorite part of the quilt?  It would have to be the little house with it's heart adorned blue shudders.  Ever sooo cute, don't you think?! The edge binding is shot and there is a bit of age in several places that does not detract, as you can see.  Excellent condition, offered as found.  c.1930's  46" X 65"
