Up in the loft with rocking chair - it took up the whole wall!
A few people have asked, "how big is it?" - so I thought I'd post a couple pictures of the quilt hanging around the house. It is 10' 2" x 9' 2" and is made of four vertically pieced panels of Marseilles cloth, each around 27" in width. The 7 & 1/2" wide border adds to the size because it is not laying on top of Marseilles. Interestingly, each of the three borders is one whole strip of fabric!
Just hangin' around the house...
So that's how big it is in terms of scale, but the enormity is in the discovery. Such a rare thing, and there are so few available for study. How it was made is fascinating, and enlightening. One of the other comments I'll share is about the weight. It is very light for such a huge thing. The Marseilles cloth is very thin, but very strong, resulting in a durable bedcover that's as light as a feather.
