Oh thank you Lara. The antique little rail fence is silk I think--and have no idea how big it is, but it was enough for me to fall in love with it. If each strip was 1" finished then the overall quilt would be about 15 x 20; a nice doll sized quilt. Would love to have it as my own, so sorry can't tell you what for backing was used. Do you see the irregular fringes? Maybe it had a silk knotted fringe on the sides.
Glad you like Basho's poem--it's one of my favorites. A poem with many meanings.
