A friend of mine inherited his aunt's estate and among the trove of antiques was this bridal quilt. It is done in original turkey red (sythetic dyes which faded to pink began in 1860) so this oil based red dye didn't fade. The applique trapunto was all hand done and we measured the stitches on the hand quilting which was 12 stitches to the inch! My question is does anyone know of any quilt collectors? He wants to sell it....I'd love it, but I could never afford it.
