A few days ago I posted a picture of this antique quilt top. I took a look at it again today and took some pictures of the fabrics. They are so beautiful. I am not an expert but I think they are from about the 1880′s . The thing that is different about this one is that the maker pressed open the seams (see picture below). I rarely see that done in a quilt top. It is a big top (86″ x 97″) The border is a different pink than the fabric used in the main part of the top and I think may have been added later. There are a few different indigos used and a variety of browns (some look gray but they are brown), all the reds are the same.
