I got a new quilt top yesterday. It is from an eBay seller in Texas. here is how the seller described it:
*RARE, KOOKY, HAYWIRE, VINTAGE, REVERSE, MIRROR IMAGE, HAND PIECED, FRUIT BASKET, QUILT TOP
*THIS IS A FABULOUS FIND FROM THE DEEP SOUTH AND ONE THAT YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS OWNING. THIS QUILT TOP IS PIECED IN A WILD KOOKY HAYWIRE MANNER, WITH FRUIT BASKETS GOING ONE WAY ON THE LEFT AND ANOTHER WAY ON THE RIGHT SIDE
*FABRICS: OLD COTTONS
*MEASUREMENT: 70″ X 90″
*CONDITION: GOOD VINTAGE CONDITION.
It is a bit haywire but I love it. I’m thinking that a southern quilt of this age would have been quilted in a Baptist Fan pattern.
Here is one with different baskets, but similar age and also from the south
